de Caussade: personal surrender

Sunday, June 16, 2024
    Feast of Richard of Chichester, Bishop, 1253
    Commemoration of Joseph Butler, Bishop of Durham, Moral Philosopher, 1752
    [Jesus:] “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
    —Matthew 6:31-33 (NIV)
    Since God offers to manage our affairs for us, let us once and for all hand them over to His infinite wisdom, in order to occupy ourselves only with Himself and what belongs to Him.
    ... Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751), Abandonment to Divine Providence, II.ii.1 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:31-34; Ps. 55:22; Pr. 3:9-10; Matt. 4:4; Luke 12:29-31; John 6:27,51; 1 Pet. 5:7;
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I yield my cares to You, trusting in Your goodness.
