    [Jesus:] “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”
    —Mark 9:50 (NIV)
    We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), Christian Perfection [1726], London: W. Baynes, 1807, p. 273 (see the book)
    See also Mark 9:50; Isa. 1:15-17; 29:13; Matt. 5:13; 15:17-20; 23:25-26; Luke 6:45-46; 14:34-35; Rom. 8:26-27; Tit. 1:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to live and pray according to Your will.
