de Sales: the believer's lot

Friday, January 24, 2020
    Feast of François de Sales, Bishop of Geneva, Teacher, 1622
    For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
    —1 Corinthians 12:13 (NIV)
    We must not be unjust and require from ourselves what is not in ourselves... Do not desire not to be what you are, but desire to be very well what you are.
    ... François de Sales (1567-1622), Spiritual Maxims, Longmans, Green, 1954, p. 138,114 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 12:12-27; Matt. 3:2; 19:11-12; 12:1; Rom. 6:11-14; 14:6-8; Col. 3:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me the grace to be Your servant in the role You have ordained.
