Augustine: the heart's rest

Thursday, March 21, 2024
    [Jesus:] “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
    —Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
    Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in thee.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Confessions [397], Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1886, I.i, p. 1 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 11:28-30; Ps. 38:4; 116:7; Isa. 55:1-3; 66:2; Jer. 6:16; Mic. 6:6-8; Gal. 5:1; 2 Thess. 1:6-7; Heb. 4:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Are there some near me who need hear about the Lord’s rest?
