““Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong

man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his

riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he

understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who

exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for

in these I delight,” declares the Lord.”

Jeremiah 9:23-24

“If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15)

“For worship is the submission of all our nature to God. It

is the quickening of conscience by His holiness; the

imagination by His beauty’ the opening of the heart to His

love; the surrender of will to His purpose – and all of this

gathered up in adoration…”

--William Law
