Carmichael: blindness to suffering

Friday, January 18, 2019
    Commemoration of Amy Carmichael, Founder of the Dohnavur Fellowship, 1951
    Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
    —Ephesians 5:1-2 (NIV)
    If souls can suffer alongside, and I hardly know it, because the spirit of discernment is not in me, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK, 1961, p. 47 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 5:1-2; Ps. 119:125; John 13:34; Gal. 6:2; Eph. 4:2; Col. 3:14; 1 Pet. 4:8; 1 John 4:20-21
Quiet time reflection:
    Open my eyes, Lord, to those in need around me.
