• ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Joy and Strength 09/11

Love worketh no ill to his neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Rom. xiii. lo.

In her tongue is the law of kindness.
Pro v. xxxi. 26.

THE worst kinds of unhappiness, as well as the greatest amount of it, come from our conduct to each other. If our conduct, therefore, were under the control of kindness, it would be nearly the opposite of what it is, and so the state of the world would be almost reversed. We are for the most part unhappy, because the world is an unkind world. But the world is only unkind for the lack of kindness in us units who compose it.
Frederick Wm. Faber

You feel in some families as if you were living between the glasses of a microscope. Manner, accent, expression, all that goes to make up your “personality,” all that you do or leave undone, is commented upon and found fault with.
H. Bowman

If you would be loved as a companion, avoid unnecessary criticism upon those with whom you live.
Arthur Helps

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon
