Fenelon: concerning a real conversion

Wednesday, September 15, 2021
Offer right sacrifices
    and trust in the LORD.
    —Psalm 4:5 (NIV)
    Put not your trust in yourself, or in anything created; it is all a mere nothing, which can never satisfy the heart of man, made as it is for God. But never mistrust Him Who contains every good thing in Himself, and Who mercifully fills you with disgust for all else, in order to bring you forcibly back to Himself.
    ... François Fénelon (1651-1715), Spiritual Letters of Archbishop Fénelon. Letters to men, London: Rivingtons, 1877, p. 11 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 4:5; 146:3; 1 Cor. 2:12; 1 Tim. 6:17; 1 John 2:15-17; Rev. 2:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You always bring me back to You.
