Temple: for love

Monday, November 6, 2017
    Feast of William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1944
    And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
    —Hebrews 13:16 (NIV)
    The principle of sacrifice is that we choose to do or to suffer what apart from our love we should not choose to do or to suffer.
    ... William Temple (1881-1944), Readings in St. John’s Gospel, London: Macmillan, 1939, 1952, p. xxix-xxx (see the book)
    See also Heb. 13:16; Mic. 6:7-8; Matt. 19:29; Mark 10:29-30; Luke 18:29-30; Eph. 5:2; Phil. 4:18; Heb. 6:10; 13:15-16; 1 Pet. 2:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me into true sacrifice.
