Schedule Appointments with God, and Keep Them — A Quote from François Fénelon in “Talking with God”

“We must… reserve the necessary time that we may seek God alone in prayer. Those who have positions of importance to fill usually have so many indispensable duties to perform, that without the greatest care in the management of time, there will be none left to be alone with God…”

“We must be firm in observing our rules. This strictness seems excessive, but without it everything falls into confusion… We will become unconsciously drawn away from God, surrendering ourselves to all our pleasures.”

— François Fénelon, “Talking with God” (Translated by Hal M. Helms), p 11
