quote for today

"In active obedience we worship God by doing what pleases God, but by passive obedience we do as well worship God by being pleased with what God does…It is but one side of a Christian to endeavour to do what pleases God; you must as well endeavour to be pleased with what God does, and so you will come to be a complete Christian when you can do both…"

- Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment

I found this quote on Nacy Wilson's blog this morning. I love how Mr. Burroughs states it, so simple and yet so profound. Being pleased with what God does ..... my focus for today.
