Let us learn, hence, to cast our care upon providence, to follow and attend the motions of it, composing ourselves into an expectation of the event, with a resolution to acquiesce in it, whatever it be.  Sometimes that proves best done for us that is least our own doing.  “Sit still,” therefore, “and see how the matter will fall,” and say, “Let it fall how it will, I am ready for it.” – Matthew Henry (1662-1714), commenting on Ruth 3.14-18.
