March 17 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Where hast thou gleaned to-day?–RUTH ii. 19.

What have I learnt where’er I’ve been, From all I’ve heard, from all I’ve seen? What know I more that’s worth the knowing? What have I done that’s worth the doing? What have I sought that I should shun? What duties have I left undone?
PYTHAGORAS.
All of this world will soon have passed away. But God will remain, and thou, whatever thou hast become, good or bad. Thy deeds now are the seed-corn of eternity. Each single act, in each several day, good or bad, is a portion of that seed. Each day adds some line, making thee more or less like Him, more or less capable of His love.
E. B. PUSEY.
There is something very solemn in the thought that that part of our work which we have left undone may first be revealed to us at the end of a life filled up, as we had fondly hoped, with useful and necessary employments.
SARAH W. STEPHEN.

  • “Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NKJV)
