Owen: spiritually minded

Wednesday, March 20, 2024
    Feast of Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne, Missionary, 687
He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his soul;
    But he that is careless of his ways shall die.
    —Proverbs 19:16 (ASV)
    To pray earnestly and live carelessly is to proclaim that a man is not spiritually minded in his prayer.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), The Grace and Duty of being Spiritually Minded [1681], in Works of John Owen, v. VII, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1852, I.6, p. 295 (see the book)
    See also Pr. 19:16; Ps. 62:11-12; Eccl. 12:14; Matt. 7:26-27; 12:35-37; Gal. 6:7-8; Jas. 2:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Do my petitions match my life?
