Taylor: to live as we preach

Saturday, November 17, 2018
    Feast of Hugh, Carthusian Monk, Bishop of Lincoln, 1200
    Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God—even as I try to please everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.
    —1 Corinthians 10:32-33 (NIV)
    We are not only to renounce evil, but to manifest the truth...
    We tell this people the world is vain; let our lives manifest that it is so. We tell them that our home is above—that all these things are transitory—does our dwelling look like it? O to live consistent lives!
    ... J. Hudson Taylor (1832-1905), in Days of Blessing in Inland China, Montagu Harry Proctor Beauchamp, London: Morgan & Scott, 1887, p. 33 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 10:32-33; 13:3; 2 Cor. 4:2; Jas. 2:15-17; 2 Pet. 1:5-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, show me how to clean up my act!
