van Dyke: four things

Wednesday, August 23, 2017
    Commemoration of Rose of Lima, Contemplative, 1617
    He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
    —Micah 6:8 (NIV)
Four things a man must learn to do
If he would make his record true:
To think without confusion clearly,
To love his fellow men sincerely,
To act from honest motives purely,
To trust in God and heaven securely.
    ... Henry van Dyke (1852-1933), The Poems of Henry Van Dyke, New York: C. Scribner’s Sons, 1920, p. 277 (see the book)
    See also Mic. 6:8; Mark 12:29-31; Luke 6:36; Col. 3:12; Tit. 2:11-14; 1 Pet. 3:8; 2 Pet. 1:5-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a heart that trusts You in all things.
