November 19 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain_.–JAMES i. 26.
I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue.–PS. xxxix. I.

No sinful word, nor deed of wrong, Nor thoughts that idly rove; But simple truth be on our tongue, And in our hearts be love.
ST. AMBROSE.
Let us all resolve,–First, to attain the grace of SILENCE; Second, to deem all FAULT-FINDING that does no good a SIN, and to resolve, when we are happy ourselves, not to poison the atmosphere for our neighbors by calling on them to remark every painful and disagreeable feature of their daily life; Third, to practise the grace and virtue of PRAISE.
HARRIET B. STOWE.
Surrounded by those who constantly exhibit defects of character and conduct, if we yield to a complaining and impatient spirit, we shall mar our own peace without having the satisfaction of benefiting others.
T. C. UPHAM.
