A profound thought

A blogging friend of mine has a way of posting incredibly profound thoughts that are short but provoke considerable contemplation. His February 4 post did precisely that... take a read and think on it for a bit.
In his 1863 "Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day", Abraham Lincoln asserted that American's had taken for granted God's kindness: "We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own".

Thank God for how He uses the body for mutual encouragement!
