• “Lord, may no gift of yours ever take Your place in my heart. Help me to hold them lightly in an open palm, that the supreme object of my desire may always be You and You alone. Purify my heart.” – Elisabeth Elliot

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.
