Loving Thoughts for the Soul

As news of another lockdown has been announced, this ancient wisdom may speak to our condition:

All that pleases is but for a moment.
All that troubles is but for a moment,
That only is important, which is eternal.

These words of peace and reconciliation, are needed as much as when they were first written over three hundred years ago:

“Be at peace with those from whom you differ in opinion and receive them not with doubtful disputations. Be as ready to do every office of love and kindness and respect to those who differ from whom you dissent as to those with whom you consent; resolve, though you differ from them, you will not differ with them…”

Matthew Henry, Dissenting Minister, 1662-1714
