March 8 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed_.–2 TIM. ii. 15.
_And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season we shall reap if we faint not_.–GAL. vi. 9.

The task Thy wisdom hath assigned, Oh, let me cheerfully fulfil; In all my works Thy presence find, And prove Thine acceptable will.
C. WESLEY.
“What is my next duty? What is the thing that lies nearest to me?” “That belongs to your every-day history. No one can answer that question but yourself. Your next duty is just to determine what your next duty is. Is there nothing you neglect? Is there nothing you know you ought not to do? You would know your duty, if you thought in earnest about it, and were not ambitious of great things.” “Ah, then,” responded she, “I suppose it is something very commonplace, which will make life more dreary than ever. That cannot help me.” “It will, if it be as dreary as reading the newspapers to an old deaf aunt. It will soon lead you to something more. Your duty will begin to comfort you at once, but will at length open the unknown fountain of life in your heart.”
G. MACDONALD.
