Keble: If on our daily course
Feast of John Keble, Priest, Poet, Tractarian, 1866
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
—2 Corinthians 4:7 (NIV)
If on our daily course our mind
Be set, to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.
The trivial round, the common task,
Would furnish all we ought to ask;
Room to deny ourselves; a road
To bring us, daily, nearer God.
... John Keble (1792-1866), The Christian Year , G. W. Doane, ed., Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, 1842, p. 18-19 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Lead me, Lord, to You.
