Brainerd: life worth living

Wednesday, April 26, 2023
Why do I put myself in jeopardy
    and take my life in my hands?
Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him;
    I will surely defend my ways to his face.
    —Job 13:14-15 (NIV)
    As long as I see any thing to be done for God, life is worth having: but O how vain and unworthy it is, to live for any lower end!
    ... David Brainerd (1718-1747), Memoirs of the Rev. David Brainerd, New Haven: S. Converse, 1822, p. 424 (see the book)
    See also Job 13:14-15; Ps. 39:4-7; 94:11; 119:81; Isa. 47:8-9; Luke 8:14; 12:16-21; Rom. 15:13; Heb. 11:24-26
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, show me the work You would have me do.
