Boreham on Absent-mindedness

“Jesus took great care to make His virtues habitual. “As His custom was, He went up to the synagogue.” He knew that, unless the minor graces become mechanical, the major graces must become impossible. I have often thought that, in His earlier days — the days of His boyhood, the days of His youth, the days of His labor at the bench — Jesus must have schooled Himself to do absentmindedly a thousand little thoughtful and unselfish kindnesses or He could never have brought Himself, in the crisis of His life and the vigor of His manhood, to die for us men on the bitter and shameful Cross.” – FW Boreham, The Home of the Echoes
