Know Thyself

From Your PreceptsArtwork by naradjou14 (

“People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.”

~St. Augustine

To know our Creator is to know our true selves.

    A man goes into a bank to cash a check. The teller said, “Can you identify yourself?” The man pulled a mirror out of his pocket, looked at it and said, “Yes, that’s me.” Have a great day. Jerry

  4. Your Saint Augustine quote reminds me of another one attributed to him: “Our heart is restless until it rests in you.”

    Hi Mitch,

    Lord, open our eyes and those yet to be saved so they can truly know you. Have a great week, brother.
