Calvin: taking care of His own

Friday, July 10, 2009
    Quincentenary of John Calvin, 1509

    By the word of the LORD were the heavens made,
    their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
    —Psalm 33:6 (NIV)

    Nobody seriously believes the universe was made by God without being persuaded that He takes care of His works.
    ... John Calvin (1509-1564), The Institutes of the Christian Religion [1559], tr. John Allen, Presbyterian Board of Publication and Sabbath-School Work, 1921, I.xvi.1, p. 183 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You take care of those I love, Your creatures.
