February 16 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Serve Him with a perfect heart, and with a willing mind.–I CHRON. xxviii. 9.

And if some things I do not ask, In my cup of blessing be, I would have my spirit filled the more With grateful love to Thee,– More careful,–not to serve Thee much, But to please Thee perfectly.
A. L. WARING.
Little things come daily, hourly, within our reach, and they are not less calculated to set forward our growth in holiness, than are the greater occasions which occur but rarely. Moreover, fidelity in trifles, and an earnest seeking to please God in little matters, is a test of real devotion and love. Let your aim be to please our dear Lord perfectly in little things, and to attain a spirit of childlike simplicity and dependence. In proportion as self-love and self-confidence are weakened, and our will bowed to that of God, so will hindrances disappear, the internal troubles and contests which harassed the soul vanish, and it will be filled with peace and tranquillity.
JEAN NICOLAS GROU.
