And as thy servant was busy here and there, he was gone.
1 Kings xx. 40.
Blessed is he that considereth the weak; Jehovah will deliver him in the day of evil.
Ps. xli. l (R. V. margin).
Encourage the faint-hearted, support the weak, be long-suffering toward all.
1 Thess. v. 14 (R. v.).
IT is decreed in the providence of God that, although the opportunities for doing good, which are in the power of every man, are beyond count or knowledge; yet, the opportunity once neglected, no man by any self-sacrifice can atone for those who have fallen or suffered by his negligence.
Juliana H. Ewing.
Do not make life hard to any.
R. W. Emerson.
Forgive us if this day we have done or said anything to increase the pain of the world. Pardon the unkind word, the impatient gesture, the hard and selfish deed, the failure to show sympathy and kindly help where we had the opportunity, but missed it; and enable us so to live that we may daily do something to lessen the tide of human sorrow, and add to the sum of human happiness.
F. B. Meyer
