Newbigin: relatedness

Wednesday, November 15, 2023
    Commemoration of Oswald Chambers, spiritual writer, 1917
    Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
    —1 Peter 4:8 (NIV)
    From its first page to its last, the Bible is informed by a vision of human nature for which neither freedom nor equality is fundamental; what is fundamental is relatedness.
    ... Lesslie Newbigin (1909-1998), Foolishness to the Greeks: the Gospel and Western culture, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1986, p. 118 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 4:8; Ps. 133:1; Matt. 20:26-28; John 13:34; 15:12; Rom. 12:10; Eph. 5:1-2; Phil. 2:3; 1 Thess. 4:9; 1 Pet. 1:22; 5:5; 1 John 2:7-10; 4:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, cast out ambition and envy from my heart, so that I may love the brothers.
