Babcock: watching for mercies

Monday, May 15, 2023
    Commemoration of Charles Williams, Spiritual Writer, 1945
How can I repay the LORD
    for all his goodness to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and call on the name of the LORD.
    —Psalm 116:12-13 (NIV)
    Be on the lookout for mercies. The more we look for them, the more of them will we see. Blessings brighten when we count them. Out of the determination of the heart the eyes see.
    ... Maltbie D. Babcock (1858-1901), Thoughts for Every-day Living, New York: C. Scribner’s sons, 1901, p. 107 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 116:12-13; 103:2; Luke 17:15-18; Rom. 12:1; 2 Cor. 5:14-15; Phil. 4:6-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I see Your blessings in my life.
