Good Morning

I am come that they might have life,
and that they might have it more abundantly
John 10:10

Life is back of love,
back of believing,
back of hoping,
back of everything.
Ezekiel in his vision of the “River of Life” understood life;
he knew what it meant–
at first a little stream to the ankles,
then, as he went farther on, it came to the knees,
and then to the loins,
and finally a wide, mighty river.
That is life.
Do you know what life is?
No; neither does anybody else.
Life is indefinable;
life is an ultimate; live is God;
life is effectiveness; life is power.
Adjustment to the things around you–
correspondence to environment–that is life.
The plodding man does not live.
He goes out in the morning and hears the birds,
the heralds of the spring, sweetly singing in the trees.
The flowers are blooming in the fields,
the whole world is full of music,
it id everywhere;
but the sweet primrose growing on the bank does not for him contain life and beauty and music–
it remains a primrose still.
Love is measured by the humbler of things you are alive to.
