Nice for a sampler (I like it so much I might even make one), but not Scripture, AFIK. (I could be wrong.)
Thanks. Another helpful viewpoint - the sin and misery of this world helps break my old rotten love affair with sin and allow more of God’s ways in.
So it’s a paraphrase mostly due to my simple mind - always trying to be a minimalist. In other words as a code jockey: “It’s the least I could do, and I always try to do the least I can do!”
Living in the tension of the truth that the will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you, can be very difficult, but if God calls, He carries and equips. I have lived the reality of His constant care and I am confident of this truth. His grace is sufficient; His power is made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Another paraphrase from Proverbs - Eat to live, don’t live to eat.
