Do I love God's people? - George Burder
Do I love God's people? Can I say to Christ, as Ruth to Naomi, "Thy people shall be my people?" Do I love them because they love Christ and bear his image? Do I feel a union of spirit with them, though they may not be of my party, or think exactly as I do? Can I say, "I know that I have passed from death of life, because I love the brethren?"
George Burder 1752-1832
Quoted in the book A Pastor's Counsel: Wise Words for Weary, Wounded, and Wandering Sheep
