Inge: the shut mind

Sunday, February 11, 2024
The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
    a light has dawned.
    —Isaiah 9:2 (NIV)
    As Christ is our life, so He is also our light. And surely the light means, among other things, the open mind towards Divine things. We need not be afraid of losing our faith by facing all problems honestly, while our lives are on the right lines. But while our minds are shut we cannot help others in their difficulties. We are more likely to turn them away from Christianity.
    ... William R. Inge (1860-1954), Personal Religion and the Life of Devotion, London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1924, p. 75 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 9:2; Ps. 107:10-14; Matt. 4:16; Mark 3:4-5; 16:14; John 8:12; 1 Pet. 2:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, open my mind to Your truth.
