Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Edwards Wednesday

Proverbs 14:12

The Highest Mountain

There is nothing here below that reaches heaven, no, not the highest things, but all fall immensely short of it. Many things, before we experience them, seem to reach heaven. The tops of high mountains seem to touch the sky, and when we are in the plain and look up to their tops, it seems to us as though, if we were there, we could touch the sun, moon, and stars; but when we are come, we seem as far off from those heavenly things as ever. So there is nothing here below by which we can attain to happiness, though there be many of the high and great things of the world that seem to others that don’t enjoy them as though a happiness was to be reached by them. Yet those that have experience find happiness as far from them as form those that are in a lower state of life.
