Principles and Practices - November 23


To live in God's presence is the only way to perfection. When we lose sight of Him, we walk as in the dark; we choose shadows for substances, we fall into snares and errors, we are exposed to our enemies, our infirmities, etc.

'I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, whence cometh my help' (Ps. cxx, I).

Looking down at our feet - human prudence - is not suffi­cient to secure us. Look upwards.
