Chesterton: left untried

Wednesday, October 28, 2020
    Feast of Simon & Jude, Apostles
    [Jesus:] I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?
    —John 3:11-12 (NIV)
    The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
    ... Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), What’s Wrong with the World, New York: Dodd, Mead & Co., 1912, p. 48 (see the book)
    See also John 3:11-12; Matt. 7:13-14; Luke 6:46-49; 7:30-35; 12:16-21; John 1:11; 5:39-40; 12:37; 1 Cor. 1:18-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You draw Your people to Yourself, regardless the difficulty.
