Yancey: marking time?

Friday, November 18, 2022
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
    shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
    —Proverbs 4:18 (NIV)
    The people of God are not merely to mark time, waiting for God to step in and set right all that is wrong. Rather, they are to model the new heaven and new earth, and by so doing awaken longings for what God will someday bring to pass.
    ... Philip Yancey (b. 1949), Disappointment with God: Three Questions No One Asks Aloud, p. 237 (see the book)
    See also Pr. 4:18; Isa. 42:3; Mark 15:43; John 12:36; Phil. 2:14-16; Rev. 21:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made Your people show forth the kingdom.
