Augustine's influence

As much as I am enjoying re-reading the Imitation of Christ, I recognise the massive influence of other people on Thomas a Kempis. He was influenced by other Christians in his community, the Bible, philosophers and Church teachers. His thoughts for today include similar sentiments to those of Saint Augustine. Have a look and see what you think.

Augustine - "You have created us for yourself and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you."

Thomas a Kempis - "I will never be content until my heart is devoted above all else to you."

Any thoughts?

May Jesus be the one influencing your thoughts and actions today. God bless you.

Living In Grace
