Law: weakness

Monday, October 8, 2018
    When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
    —Mark 10:14-15 (NIV)
    Weak and imperfect men shall, notwithstanding their frailties and defects, be received as having pleased God, if they have done their utmost to please Him.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life [1728], London: Methuen, 1899, p. 32 (see the book)
    See also Mark 10:14-15; Ps. 10:17-18; Matt. 8:8; 15:26-27; Luke 5:8; 7:6-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Am I constantly trying to prove myself?
