Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)


To do justice and judgment [is] more acceptable
to the LORD than sacrifice.

He hath shewed thee, O man, what [is] good; and what doth the
LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and
to walk humbly with thy God?--Hath the LORD [as great] delight
in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of
the LORD? Behold, to obey [is] better than sacrifice, [and] to
hearken than the fat of rams.--To love him with all the heart,
and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with
all the strength, and to love [his] neighbour as himself, is
more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and
wait on thy God continually.--Mary . . . sat at Jesus' feet, and
heard his word.--One thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that
good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

It is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of
[his] good pleasure.

Php 2:13


The spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

The LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and
breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a
living soul.--[There is] a spirit in man: and the inspiration of
the Almighty giveth them understanding.--The first man Adam was
made a living soul.--The spirit of man that goeth upward.

Whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the
Lord. . . . We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be
absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.--With
Christ; which is far better.--I would not have you to be
ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye
sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe
that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in
Jesus will God bring with him.

I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a
place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;
that where I am, [there] ye may be also.
