“Do not say, since He blessed us before we knew Him, He will again, irrespective of whether we bless him or not. This is a great mistake: He blessed us before we knew it in order that we might rise up to bless Him. He has shown His love towards us because He wants us to return it, which response on our part, apparently, is his greatest desire” (Rev William Still – on 2 Chronicles 6:3-6).
