Joy and Strength 11/26

He that contemneth small things shall fall by little and little.
Eccles. xix. i.

Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
1 Cor. xvi. 13.

Stand then in His great might.
With all His strength endued;
But take, to arm you for the fight.
The panoply of God.
Leave no unguarded place,
No weakness of the soul;
Take every virtue, every grace,
And fortify the whole.
Charles Wesley.

LET every one consider what his weak point is; in that is his trial. His trial is not in those things which are easy to him, but in that one thing, in those several things, whatever they are, in which to do his duty is against his nature. Never think yourself safe because you do your duty in ninety-nine points; it is the hundredth which is to be the ground of your self-denial. It is with reference to this you must watch and pray; pray continually for God’s grace to help you, and watch with fear and trembling lest you fall. Oh that you may (as it were) sweep the house diligently to discover what you lack of the full measure of obedience! for, be quite sure, that this apparently small defect will influence your whole spirit and judgment in all things.
John Henry Newman
