Our proper enjoyment of every earthly blessing
(Hannah More, "The Love of God")
There are three requirements to our proper enjoyment
of every earthly blessing which God bestows on us:
1. A thankful reflection on the goodness of the giver.
2. A deep sense of the unworthiness of the receiver.
3. A sober recollection of the precarious tenure by which we hold it.
The first would make us grateful, the second humble, the last moderate.
