Sometimes the biographies of Christians may have a depressing effect, and that was how the life of Jonathan Edwards first appeared to M'Cheyne. He felt, "How feeble does my spark of Christianity appear beside such a sun!" Then he added these significant words, "But even his was a borrowed light, and the same source is still open to enlighten me."

The disorder of daily life is a product of disorder in the innermost places of the heart. Things are not the way they ought to be because we are not the way we are supposed to be. Which means our understanding of busyness must start with the one sin that begets so many of our other sins: pride.

The mysterious unfolding of God's purpose is seldom understood in the immediate. In most cases it is, as the old song reminds us, "Farther along we'll know all about it. Farther along, we'll understand why." There are features of God's dealings with us that in His loving wisdom, He determines to keep hidden from us (Deut. 29:29). We may be confident that nothing escapes His notice or catches Him by surprise. Although we may only see links in the chain, God sees the end from the beginning and is constantly overruling the events – global and personal – for His glory and for the good of His people...

This month's letter is about letters. The topic is prompted by the fact that we've changed the format of this one to include pictures.

Praise is prayer. When I lift up my heart to God to praise Him, I talk to Him and commune with Him. Prayer is not all asking. As Thomas Watson, the seventeenth-century Puritan, quaintly put it, "Many have tears in their eyes, and complaints in their mouth, but few have harps in their hand, blessing and glorifying God. Let us honor God this way. Praise is the quit-rent we pay to God: while God renews our lease, we must renew our rent."

Praise is man's legitimate and proper preoccupation with God. The late Senator Robert Kennedy visited Brazil and in the course of his trip was taken into the interior of the country to see some of the tribal situations. He was introduced, by interpretation, to an Indian who had not long been converted. "Ask him," the senator said to his interpreter, "what does he enjoy doing most?" The Indian's reply came as a surprise, "Being occupied with God." Convinced that the Indian had not understood his question, and that the answer should have been something like fishing or hunting, the senator insisted the question be repeated, but the answer came back again – "Being occupied with God." This seemingly insignificant Indian, now part of God's new creation, had discovered his chief end in life.

"Why am I here?" We all must have asked that question at times – and if not in those words, in others very similar. To understand man's chief end – the purpose of God's creation of man – we must appreciate God's design for the whole of creation, for man represents a significant part of that creation.

We can more clearly grasp His providence when we look at the storyline of the Bible from a panoramic perspective. It is only then that we can begin to see how seemingly insignificant events are woven together and form the far greater picture of God's master plan for our salvation...

God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble (Ps 138:6; Prov 3:34 [cf. the Septuagint version]; Mt 18:1-4; Jas 4:6; 1 Pet 5:5). What is it about arrogance that God so abhors, and why does he regard humility so favorably?....
