3 Biblical Tips To Stay Sane In Our Overloaded World

Via The Huffington Post:

In Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough's excellent biography of John Adams, he shares a correspondence with Adams' granddaughter Caroline in response to her being distressed over how little she felt she knew about life.

Adam's wrote:

"You are not singular in your suspicions that you know but a little. The longer I live, the more I read, the more patiently I think, and the more anxiously I inquire, the less I seem to know... Do justly. Love Mercy. Walk humbly. This is enough... So questions and so answers your affectionate grandfather".

John Adams was paraphrasing the words of the Biblical prophet Micah. The full quote from Micah 6:8 is:

"He has shown you, humankind, what is good! What does the Divine request of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your Lord?"
