Poem of the day
[month Of] April
by Hilaire Belloc
The stranger warmth of the young sun obeying,
Look! little beads of green begin to grow,
And hidden flowers have dated their tops to show
Where late such droughty dusts were rudely playing.
It's not the month, but all the world's a-maying!
Come then with me, I'll take you, for I know
Where the first hedgethorns and white windflowers blow:
We two alone,, that goes without the saying.

Most people are not really free. They are confined by the niche in the world that they carve out for themselves. They limit themselves to fewer possibilities by the narrowness of their vision.

Jeremiah Hurt: John Webster from Psalm 95 on how to guard against having a hard heart—
1.) We must listen to Holy Scripture.
2.) We must listen with the people of God. We cannot guard our hearts on our own. We need others to minister God’s Word to us. (Heb 3:13)
3.) We must listen today.
