“Begin Your Day with God”

“It is no small advantage to the holy life to ‘begin the day with God.’ The saints are wont to leave their hearts with Him over night, that they may find them with Him in the morning.  Before earthly things break in upon us, and we receive impressions from abroad, it is good to season the heart with the thoughts of God, and to consecrate the early and virgin operations of the mind before they are prostituted to baser objects. When the world gets the start of religion in the morning, it can hardly overtake it all the day.”

By Thomas Case, “A Puritan Golden Treasury”, I. D. E. Thomas, p.141
