Fuller: His absence

Friday, February 22, 2019
    Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall.
    —Romans 14:19-21 (NIV)
    It is to be feared lest our long quarrels about the manner of His presence cause the matter of His absence, for our want of charity to receive Him.
    ... Thomas Fuller (1608-1661), Good Thoughts in Bad Times [1645], Chicago: United Society of Christian Endeavor, Boston, 1898, Mixt Contemplations, II. (see the book)
    See also Rom. 14:19-21; 1 Cor. 13; 1 Tim. 1:3-4; 6:3-4,11-12; Tit. 3:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, come into our hearts.
