Joy and Strength 03/21

Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
Matt. xxv. 45.

Abide ye here, and watch with me.
Matt. xxvi. 38 (R. v.).

If today thou turn’st aside
In thy luxury and pride,
Wrapped within thyself, and blind
To the sorrows of thy kind.
Thou a faithless watch dost keep.
Thou art one of those who sleep.
Anna C. Lynch Botta.

I HAVE been sorrowfully convinced that in what I thought necessary attention to home duties, my time and strength have been engrossed to a degree that I fear has interfered with my duty to others. It is a serious consideration, how much good we miss of doing by our want of watchfulness for opportunities, and our engrossment even in our lawful and necessary- cares; and there is another way, too, in the influence we might continually exert over all who come in contact with us, and through them over others, to an extent of which we are probably not aware, if we continually kept in a meek and quiet spirit. Ah, it may be with some of us that it is more for what we leave undone than for what we do, that we shall be called to an account.
Elizabeth Taber King.

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22
