And after he sent the crowds away, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone.—Matt 14:23 NET
Do we, like Him, combine the two great elements of human character? Are our public duties, the cares, and business, and engrossments of the world, finely tempered and hallowed by a secret walk with God? If the world were to follow us from its busy thoroughfares, would it trace us to our family altars and our closet devotions?
Action and meditation are the two great components of Christian life, and the perfection of the religious character is to find the two in unison and harmony. — Macduff.
