Thoughts of the day.

 

Our only hope of eternal life is through bringing the appetites and passions into subjection to the will of God. The Desire of Ages, p. 122.

The Lord works continually to benefit mankind. He is ever imparting His bounties. He raises up the sick from beds of languishing, He delivers men from peril which they do not see, He commissions heavenly angels to save them from calamity, to guard them… but their hearts are unimpressed. He has given all the riches of heaven to redeem them, and yet they are unmindful of His great love. By their ingratitude they close their hearts against the grace of God. Like the heath in the desert they know not when good cometh. Desire of Ages, p. 348
