Thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in His ways.
Deut. viii. 6.

And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
Luke xvii. 14.

GOD calls us to duty, and the only right answer is obedience. If it can be glad and willing and loving obedience, happy are we; but, in any case, whether we ourselves get enjoyment and blessing from the task or not, the call must be obeyed. The will of God nriust be done for the sake of God, not for the sake of ourselves. Undertake the duty, and step by step God will provide the disposition. We can at least obey. Ideal obedience includes the whole will and the whole heart. We cannot begin with that. But we can begin with what we have. God calls. It is better to obey blunderingly than not to obey at all.
George Hodges.

The test of love is not feeling, but obedience.
William Bernard Ullathorne.

If one fights for good behavior, God makes one a present of the good feelings.
Juliana H. Ewing.
