• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

Joy and Strength 09/15

If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; if thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it, and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it? and shall not He render unto every man according to his works?
Prov. xxiv. 11, 12.

WHAT we value for ourselves we must seek to spread to others; and what we shrink from ourselves — lowering surroundings, a tainted atmosphere — what we shrink to think of those nearest and dearest to us being exposed to — let us do all we can to remove from others. “Lead us not into temptation. Deliver us from evil.” Do what you can to sweeten the mental and moral atmosphere that surrounds you.
Arthur C. A. Hall.

We have a more or less true ideal of what our own human life ought to be — of what opportunities we ought to have for the development of our faculties — of what home and school and college, youth and married life and old age, work and rest, ought to mean for ourselves and our families. We are to be as truly zealous and active for other classes or other individuals as we are for our own class or our own family or ourselves.
Charles Gore
