Joy and Strength 08/26

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
2 Cor. i. 3, 4.

THE spirit of gracious and expressed affection. Ah, let no one shrink from expressing it! The heart has strange abysses of gloom, and often yearns for just one word of love to help. And it is just when the manner may be drier and less genial than usual that the need may be greatest.
Lucy C. Smith.

God puts within our reach the power of helpfulness, the ministry of pity: He is ever ready to increase His grace in our hearts, that as we live and act among all the sorrows of the world we may learn by slow degrees the skill and mystery of consolation. “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” There is no surer way of steadfast peace in this world than the active exercise, of pity ; no happier temper of mind and work than the lowly watching to see if we can “lessen any misery that is about us: nor is there any better way of growth in faith and love.
Francis Paget
