Van Dyke: Who seeks for heaven alone

Tuesday, October 23, 2018
    The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
    —1 Timothy 1:5 (NIV)
Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul,
May keep the path, but will not reach the goal;
While he who walks in love may wander far,
But God will bring him where the Blessed are.
    ... Henry van Dyke (1852-1933), The Poems of Henry Van Dyke, New York: C. Scribner’s Sons, 1920, p. 275 (see the book)
    See also 1 Tim. 1:5; Ps. 16:11; Matt. 19:16-20; John 5:39-40,46
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, place Your love in my heart.
