Thomas a Kempis: diligence

Thursday, March 19, 2020
    Feast of Joseph of Nazareth
    Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.
    —1 Peter 2:16 (NIV)
    If thou shalt remain faithful and zealous in labour, doubt not that God shall be faithful and bountiful in rewarding thee. It is thy duty to have a good hope that thou wilt attain the victory: but thou must not fall into security lest thou become slothful or lifted up.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, I.xxv.1, p. 76 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 2:16; Ps. 23:1; 65:9-13; Luke 12:35-40; John 6:31; 1 Cor. 2:9; 4:1-2; 2 Cor. 9:8-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me faithful in the hour of trial.
