Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom

Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich
man glory in his riches: but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he under-standeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord
which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth; for in these things I delight, saith the Lord
.— Jeremiah 9:23, 24.

WHAT dost thou fear?
His wisdom reigns Supreme confessed;
His power is infinite; His love
Thy deepest, fondest dreams above—
So trust and rest.
ADELAIDE A. PROCTER.

THE firm belief of, and resting on, His power and wisdom, and love, gives a clear, satisfying answer to all doubts and fears. It suffers us not to stand to jangle with each trifling, grumbling objection, but carries all before it, makes day in the soul, and so chases away those fears that vex us only in the dark. ROBERT LEIGHTON.

I feel that goodness, and truth, and righteousness are realities, eternal realities, and that they cannot be abstractions, or vapors floating in a spiritual atmosphere, but that they necessarily imply a living, personal Will, a good, loving, righteous God, in whose hands we are perfectly safe, and who is guiding us by unfailing wisdom.
THOMAS ERSKINE.
