CQOD: 10/18/07 -- Maxwell: the divine equation

Christian Quotation of the Day

October 18, 2007
Feast of Luke the Evangelist
    Receive [Wisdom's] instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
    -- Proverbs 8:10,11 (KJV)

    Almighty God, who created humanity after your image and gave them living souls that they may seek you and rule your creation, teach us so to investigate the works of your hand that we may subdue the earth to our use, and strengthen our intelligence for your service. And grant that we may so receive your Word as to believe in him whom you sent to give us the science of salvation and the forgiveness of our sins. All this we ask in the name of the same Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
    ... James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me from vanity, and lead me to seek Your truth.
