Merton: Christ in the unexpected

Tuesday, February 8, 2022
    Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.”
    —Mark 9:35 (NIV)
    The Christian life ... is a continual discovery of Christ in new and unexpected places. And these discoveries are sometimes most profitable when you find Him in something you had tended to overlook or even despise.
    ... Thomas Merton (1915-1968), The Journals of Thomas Merton, HarperCollins, 1996, p. 563 (see the book)
    See also Mark 9:35; Matt. 25:37-40; Luke 9:47-48; 2 Cor. 2:10-11; Eph. 3:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are revealing Your presence.
