Chesterton: good running wild

Tuesday, June 13, 2023
    Commemoration of Gilbert Keith Chesterton, Apologist and Writer, 1936
    The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
    —John 10:10 (KJV)
    The more I considered Christianity, the more I found that while it had established a rule and order, the chief aim of that order was to give room for good things to run wild.
    ... Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), Orthodoxy, London, New York: John Lane Company, 1909, p. 175-176 (see the book)
    See also John 10:10; Ps. 23:5; Matt. 20:26-28; Luke 19:10; John 3:17; Rom. 5:20-21; 2 Cor. 8:2; Eph. 3:20-21; Col. 2:6-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, the goodness of Your rule is boundless.
