Mondays with MacDonald (on the role of reason in faith)

Our vision is so circumscribed, our theories are so small—the garment of them not large enough to wrap us in; our faith so continually fashions itself to the fit of our dwarf intellect, that there is endless room for rebellion against ourselves: we must not let our poor knowledge limit our not so poor intellect, our intellect limit our faith, our faith limit our divine hope; reason must humbly watch over all—reason, the candle of the Lord.

George MacDonald
from Unspoken Sermons, vol. 2, “Man’s Difficulty Concerning Prayer”
