I will Might myself in Thy statutes: I will not forget Thy word.
Ps. cxix. 16.
Which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard His word.
Luke x. 39.
Lo! at Thy feet I wait Thy will.
Let that alone my being fill.
All earthly passions calm and still.
WHATEVER happens let us not be too busy to sit at Jesus’ feet. We shall not really lose time by enjoying this; nay, we shall redeem the time; for there is usually much more time and strength forfeited by friction than by toil, and we shall gain in blessedness and enjoyment of our work, and gain in the quality of our work; and, above all, we shall gain in that we shall give Him pleasure where otherwise we might only grieve Him. And this is indeed the crown of all our endeavors. He who pleases Him does not live in vain.
Wm. Hay M. H. Aitken.
A low standard of prayer means a low standard of character and a low standard of service. Those alone labor effectively among men who impetuously fling themselves upward towards God.
Charles H. Brent
