Thomas a Kempis: at rest with the Book

Saturday, May 5, 2018
    Blessed is the man
    who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
    or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD
and on his law he meditates day and night.
    —Psalm 1:1-2 (NIV)
    I have no rest, but in a nook, with the Book.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), quoted in The Treasury of David, v. I, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, New York: Funk & Wagnalls, 1883, p. 7 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 1:1-2; 119:11,15,97-99; Josh. 1:8; Rom. 15:4; 2 Tim. 3:14-17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I rest in Your word.
