Of every morsel of bread…

We should say of every morsel of bread, This is God’s gift to me; of every night’s sleep, This is the Lord’s goodness. When God is acknowledged in these outward things, he takes it the more kindly, and we are the better for it; the mercy is the sweeter and the more sanctified.
