For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.
Thought of the Day
Dag Hammarskjold, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, and former head of the United Nations from 1953- 1961 had an interesting quote about how we need to let God be our guide more often than we do. He said,
“On the bookshelf of life, God is a useful work of reference,
always at hand but seldom consulted.”
Old Dag is a pretty smart guy, I think. (It is a good thing because otherwise he would have had a tough time when he was a child, learning how to spell his name.) I think his words are too true. Sometimes we only use God when it is convenient. The Psalmist knew how important it is to know that God is our God forever; our guide to the very end.
God, Help me to turn towards you. Amen.
