Lawrence: without pleasing men

Friday, January 6, 2023
    Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart.
    —Ephesians 6:5-6 (NIV)
    The most excellent method which he had found of going to God, was that of doing our common business without any view of pleasing men, and (as far as we are capable) purely for the love of God.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Fourth Conversation, p. 16 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 7:22; Gal. 1:10; Eph. 6:5-6; Col. 3:23-24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I dedicate my labors to You.
