.Solomon (to God) ‘You have shown great mercy to Your servant David my father, because he walked before You in truth, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with You; You have continued this great kindness for him, and You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.’ 1 Kings 3:6
If you want someone to see what Christ will do for him, let him see what Christ has done for you. Henry Ward Beecher, 1813-87
