• “It is mercy that our lives are not left for us to plan, but that our Father chooses for us; else might we sometimes turn away from our best blessings, and put from us the choicest loveliest gifts of his providence.” – Susannah Spurgeon

May 6 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love.–ROM. xii. 10.
In her tongue is the law of kindness.–PROV. xxxi. 26.

Since trifles make the sum of human things, And half our misery from our foibles springs; Since life’s best joys consist in peace and ease, And though but few can serve, yet all can please; Oh, let the ungentle spirit learn from hence, A small unkindness is a great offence.
HANNAH MORE.
All usefulness and all comfort may be prevented by an unkind, a sour, crabbed temper of mind,–a mind that can bear with no difference of opinion or temperament. A spirit of fault-finding; an unsatisfied temper; a constant irritability; little inequalities in the look, the temper, or the manner; a brow cloudy and dissatisfied–your husband or your wife cannot tell why–will more than neutralize all the good you can do, and render life anything but a blessing.
ALBERT BARNES.
You have not fulfilled every duty, unless you have fulfilled that of being pleasant.
CHARLES BUXTON.

    "All usefulness and all comfort may be prevented by an unkind, a sour, crabbed temper of mind" -This is so true. It is amazing how much your attitude can effect your day. Every day when you wake up, you have a choice as to what kind of attitude you will have that day. At night, it is good to think back to parts of your day and examine how your attitude was.

Verse of the Day

[God the Sovereign Savior] To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord, who spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. And he said: I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. — Psalm 18:1-2 (NKJV)
