Thoughts from Thomas a Kempis

I’m enjoying The Imitation of Christ. Chapter 58 of the Third Book has some material that grabbed my attention.

I foreknew my beloved ones before the beginning of the world. I chose them out of the world, they chose not me first. I called them by grace. I attracted them by mercy. I led them safe through sundry temptations. I have poured into them glorious consolations, I have given them perseverance, I have crowned their patience.

It’s nice to know we’re not accidents looking for a place to happen.
