Ezra 7:10 “For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.”

“As water tastes of the soil it runs through, so does the soul taste of the authors that a man reads.” John Trapp

Psalm 78:72 “So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart, and guided them with his skillful hands.”

“As the heart is, so shall the service be.”  Jeremiah Burroughs

Acts 17:25 “God is not served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.”
