STARTING NOVEMBER 1, 2017 and throughout the month, Words for the New Church will again be sending out a series of daily readings. These readings are from the work Divine Providence and treat of the fourth of five laws of Divine Providence revealed in this book.
It is a law of the Divine Providence that man should be led and taught by the Lord from heaven by means of the Word, and doctrine and preaching from the Word, and this to all appearance as of himself . (DP 154)
The fourth law of Divine Providence thus speaks of the ways in which the Lord teaches us. There are many ways we learn spiritually, but in each case it is the Lord who is really teaching us.
