APRIL 24

 

          Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification—Rom. 15:2

 

  The lesson to each disciple of the Lord is that the special mission of his office, vocation, calling in the present time, is to sacrifice … One form of service frequently not discerned by the Lord’s disciples is the opportunity of renouncing our own ways or plans, our own methods or preferences, and in the interests of peace accepting instead the plans, the preferences of others—where it is merely a matter of personal preference, and where we believe the Lord will be as willing to have the matter one way as another. We can in the interests of peace sacrifice our preferences to the wishes of others, if we see some good can be gained by such a course.
