TEACH me, my God and King,
In all things Thee to see,
And what I do in anything,
To do it as for Thee.
George Herbert

LOVE to God makes a man have desires of the honour of God, and a desire to please Him; so does a natural man’s love to his friend make him desire his honour, and desire to please him. Love to God causes a man to delight in the thought of God, and to delight in the presence of God, and to desire conformity to God and the enjoyment of God; and so it is with a man’s love to his friend.
Jonathan Edwards

HE honours God who imitates Him. For what we virtuously imitate we approve and admire; and since we delight not to imitate Inferiors, we aggrandize and magnify those we imitate; since also we are most apt to imitate those we love, we testify our affection in our imitation of the Inimitable.
Sir Thomas Browne
