• “Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off your relish of spiritual things; in short, whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind, that thing is sin to you.” – Susanna Wesley

Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?–LUKE x. 25.
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.–ECCLES. ix. 10.

“What shall I do to gain eternal life?” “Discharge aright The simple dues with which each day is rife, Yea, with thy might.”
F. VON SCHILLER.
A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work, and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise, shall give him no peace.
R. W. EMERSON.
Be diligent, after thy power, to do deeds of love. Think nothing too little, nothing too low, to do lovingly for the sake of God. Bear with infirmities, ungentle tempers, contradictions; visit, if thou mayest, the sick; relieve the poor; forego thyself and thine own ways for love; and He whom in them thou lovest, to whom in them thou ministerest, will own thy love, and will pour His own love into thee.
E. B. PUSEY.
