    Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
    —Romans 11:33 (NIV)
    Christianity is a source; no one supply of water and refreshment that comes from it can be called the sum of Christianity... It is a mistake, and may lead to much error, to exhibit any series of maxims, even those of the Sermon on the Mount, as the ultimate sum and formula into which Christianity may be run up.
    ... Matthew Arnold (1822-1888), Literature and Dogma, New York: The Macmillian Company, 1875, p. 188,187 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 11:33; Ps. 147:4-5; Luke 10:21; John 21:25; Col. 2:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are far greater than any can express.
