Text of the Day







 The servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle to all men,

 apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves—2. Tim. 2:24,25.


 Some of the Lord’s dear people have greatly injured their influence in the Truth by display of too large a degree of self-confidence, self-assurance, in speaking of the Divine Plan to others especially to the learned. Meekness is a jewel wherever found, and is especially desirable as an adjunct and sling for the Truth. Let the Truth be shot forth with all the force it can carry, but always with meekness and humility; and the question form of suggesting Truth will often be found the most forceful.
