What if all business stopped? We have a taste of that right now. Business produces a sound, it’s a sound of busyness and activity. If all that were to stop and be replaced by silence, how refreshing would that be?
What a great expense Mary went to, to give a gift to Jesus. Not only was it expensive but it was planned.
O how long must I endure, Love I have not found, but in you. Thy law, my only solace, It is peace and satisfaction, My meditation; sweet bliss. All my hope, yet, The day I must endure. O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Psalm 119:97
Thou art the author of mercy and truth, Good and righteous is your word. Do your wonderful works among your people, Good gifts which enrich the church. Teach me to make much of my Savior, Thy Spirit to guide my soul; Statutes of truth and mercy.
