May 30 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_And thus this man died, leaving his death for an example of a noble courage, and a memorial of virtue, not only unto young men, but unto all his nation_.–2 MAC. vi. 31.

_Zebulon and Naphtali were a people that jeoparded their lives unto the death in the high places of the field_.–JUDGES v. 18.
Though Love repine, and Reason chafe, There came a voice without reply,– ‘Tis man’s perdition to be safe, When for the truth he ought to die.
R. W. EMERSON.
Some say that the age of chivalry is past. The age of chivalry is never past, so long as there is a wrong left unredressed on earth, or a man or woman left to say, “I will redress that wrong, or spend my life in the attempt.” The age of chivalry is never past, so long as we have faith enough to say, “God will help me to redress that wrong; or, if not me, He will help those that come after me, for His eternal Will is to overcome evil with good.”
C. KINGSLEY.
Thus man is made equal to every event. He can face danger for the right. A poor, tender, painful body, he can run into flame or bullets or pestilence, with duty for his guide.
R. W. EMERSON.

  • “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael

But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. — Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
