December 5 was our 8th US president’s birthday, so today I’m sharing this Martin Van Buren Coloring Page in his honor.
Martin Van Buren once observed, “It’s easier to do a job right than to explain why you didn’t.” That’s a concept my parents drove home with me as a child, and one I’ve tried to teach my own children, as well. It applies to chores, lessons, hygiene, and all manner of other activities.
But a Van Buren quote I like even better is the one featured here:
Martin Van Buren stated unequivocally, “The atonement of Jesus Christ is the only remedy and rest for my soul.” And –whether we immediately recognize that fact or not — what was true for Van Buren is true for all of us: Only Christ and Christ alone can save and satisfy our soul’s deepest longings.
- “Salvation exists in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12
- “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all.” – 1 Timothy 2:5
- “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” – Matthew 11:28-29
