Here was practical wisdom. This is what we should seek of God. Knowledge is of little service unless it be prudently utilised. To be anxiously careful for the future is wrong, but provident prudence is so evidently a virtue, that we wonder any should question it.
Ill that God blesses is our good,
And unblest good is ill,
And all is right that seems most wrong,
If it be his dear will.
I have no cares, O blessed Lord!
For all my cares are thine;
I live in triumph, Lord, for thou
Hast made thy triumphs mine.
