Exodus 19:10-25; Psalm 59:1-17; Acts 10:34-48

I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Matthew 11:25

Why was our Lord thankful? He rejoiced for the basis upon which the Father revealed His truth to His creatures. If wisdom or prudence was the criteria, many would be exempt. But simple childlike faith was the threshold for entry into the mysteries of divinity. May God give us such simple faith and may He open our understanding that we may understand the Scriptures and live them out (Luke 24:45). —Vernon Markle

Open my eyes that I might see, glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key that shall unclasp and set me free. —Clara H. Scott
