Brother Lawrence: Good when He gives

Saturday, November 14, 2020
    Commemoration of Samuel Seabury, First Anglican Bishop in North America, 1796
    Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.
    —Deuteronomy 8:5 (NIV)
Good when He gives, supremely good;
    Nor less when He denies:
Afflictions, from His sovereign hand,
    Are blessings in disguise.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), attributed, The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, p. 4 (see the book)
    See also Deut. 8:5; Ps. 118:18; 119:71-75; Pr. 15:10; Heb. 12:5-6,10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me know Your goodness in correction.
