Underhill: love is the difference

Tuesday, October 2, 2018
    Then [Stephen] fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.
    —Acts 7:60 (NIV)
    Love... makes the whole difference between an execution and a martyrdom.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The School of Charity, New York: Longmans, Green, 1934, reprinted, Morehouse Publishing, 1991, p. 55 (see the book)
    See also Acts 7:60; Luke 23:34; John 10:11-15; 15:13; Rom. 5:6-8; Eph. 5:2; 1 John 4:7-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may live the life of love.
