I guess Jim Elliot is a pretty popular person. Marli Renee, Hank and Maiden-in-Waiting all knew that last week’s quote originated from him. Hank and Maiden-in-Waiting also knew which of his books the quote was from. Those books are Shadow of the Almighty and Journals of Jim Elliot. The quote may also make an appearance in Through Gates of Splendor, but I don’t know that for sure.
Ready for this week’s quote? It’s from a book I loved when I was younger, and I’m sure many of you did too. I don’t think I would be able to guess this quote after not reading the book for so long, but we’ll see if any of you can.
“Yes, dear child, we must grieve for our sins when we remember that they helped to slay the Lord. But I am very, very glad to learn that you love Jesus, and are striving to do His will. I love Him too, and we will love one another; for you know He said, ‘By this shall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another,'” said Miss Allison, stroking the little girl’s hair, and kissing her tenderly.
Guesses anyone? Do you know what book this quote is from?
