This We Should Do

We ought in the very order of things [in creation] diligently to contemplate God’s fatherly love…[for as] foreseeing and diligent father of the family he shows his wonderful goodness to us … To conclude once for all, whenever we call God the Creator of heaven and earth, let us at the same time bear in mind that… we are indeed his children, whom he has received into his faithful protection to nourish and educate… So, invited by the great sweetness of his beneficence and goodness, let us study to love and serve him with all of our heart.

John Calvin
