Joy and Strength 09/25

He that in these things serveth Christ is accept, able to God, and approved of men.
Rom. xiv. 18.

Then shall I not he ashamed, when I have respect unto all Thy commandments.
Ps. cxix. 6.

TRUE fidelity consists in obeying God in all things, and in following the light that points out our duty, and the grace which guides us^ taking as our rule of life the intention to please God in all things, and to do always not only what is acceptable to Him, but, if possible, what is most acceptable; not trifling with petty distinctions between sins great and small, imperfections and faults, for, though there may be such distinctions, they should have no weight with the soul that is determined to do all His will. To this sincere desire to do the will of God, we must add a cheerful spirit, that is not overcome when it has failed, but begins again and again to do better; hoping always to the very end to be able to do it; bearing with its own involuntary weakness, as God bears with it; waiting with patience for the moment when it shall be delivered from it; going straight on in singleness of heart, according to the strength that it can command; losing no time by looking back, nor making useless reflections upon its falls, which can only embarrass and retard its progress.
Francois de la Mothe Fenelon
