The Best Rule for Life

Trust in God, and ye need not fear.

--Jonathan Edwards, eyes closed, as he lay in bed at College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) in 1758, knowing he was dying of complications from a smallpox inoculation, having emerged one last time into consciousness, as his friends lamented the loss to the church and the college upon his death. They were his last words.

Join me in trusting God, and fearing not.
