Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

APRIL 20

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much—Luke 16:10.

 

 This does not mean that the Lord’s people are to be content with the usual routine of daily life in the home or in the shop, and are to say to themselves, “God accepts my labor as though it were given directly to Him in some other more desirable form,” but it does mean that each person so situated should day by day carefully scan his earthly duties and obligations to see in what manner he could justly and properly cut off moments, hours or days from the service of earthly things and earthly interests that now might be given to sacrifice for spiritual things and spiritual interests of himself or others. The consecrated heart, the self-denying disciple, is the one who will improve the moments as they swiftly fly, using them as far as possible in the Father’s business.
