Grou: mistaken devotion

Sunday, December 16, 2018
    Advent III
    Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
    —Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
    Be sure [that] it is a mistaken devotion which interferes with the duties of your natural state of life.
    ... Jean Nicolas Grou (1731-1803), The Hidden Life of the Soul, London: Rivingtons, 1870, p. 21 (see the book)
    See also Gal. 6:9; 1 Cor. 15:58; 2 Thess. 3:13; Jas. 5:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Strengthen me, Lord, for the ordinary work of following you.
