MacDonald: obedience leads understanding

Monday, March 23, 2020
    [Jesus] replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
    —Luke 11:28 (NIV)
    The uncertainty... lies always in the intellectual region, never in the practical. What Paul cares about is plain enough to the true heart, however far from plain to the man whose desire to understand goes ahead of his obedience.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “The Mirrors of the Lord”, in Unspoken Sermons, Third Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1889, p. 43 (see the book)
    See also Luke 11:28; 2 Cor. 3:18; Ps. 119:100; Pr. 3:5; Matt. 9:13; Jas. 1:22
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to obey what I already know.
