Quaker Culture: Little Motions of Divine Love

Job Scott
On Seeds (November 2023)
Quaker Culture

[The Lord teaches] us not to despise the day of small things, nor to overlook the littleness of the motions of divine love in our own souls. . . [He] very instructively inculcates to us that the beginnings of [the kingdom of heaven] are small – “a little leaven,” “a little seed” . . .  [The] seed of the kingdom is the least of all seeds in the field or garden of the heart.

Job Scott (circa 1765)
