Brooks: what He is doing

Tuesday, August 16, 2022
    Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
    —Luke 9:16-17 (NIV)
    The more earnestly you are at work for Jesus, the more you need times when what you are doing for Him passes totally out of your mind, and the only thing worth thinking of seems to be what He is doing for you.
    ... Phillips Brooks (1835-1893), Twenty Sermons, New York: E.P. Dutton, 1887, p. 234 (see the book)
    See also Luke 9:16-17; Ps. 1:1-2; Jer. 14:22; Hag. 2:19; Matt. 6:32-33; 1 Cor. 2:9-10; 2 Cor. 9:8-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I abandon myself to You in prayer.
