Reflections Along the Jesus Way

November 9, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

  “Robert Louis Stevenson once remarked, ‘How little we pay our way in life!’  He was speaking of the fact that we are all debtors to others, to a great host of people who have gone before, clearing the way, pioneering, building and producing.  We are indeed indebted to so many others, even those we never knew, because we pay very little of our own way in life. What do you have that you did not receive? – 1 Corinthians 4:7

Thus, as we give thanks, we remember that the blood that flows in our veins is that of those who gave and sacrificed that we might have what they never did.  An old Greek proverb teaches us that a society grows great when wise men (and women) plant trees knowing full well they will never sit in the shade of those trees.”
