Brother Lawrence: work for the sake of love

Tuesday, July 13, 2021
    And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.
    —2 Thessalonians 3:13 (NIV)
    We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Fourth Conversation, p. 17 (see the book)
    See also 2 Thes. 3:13; Eccl. 11:1; Gal. 6:9; 1 Cor. 13:4-7; Heb. 12:1-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, remind me when I neglect Your direction.
