AUGUST 8

 

 Into whatsoever house ye enter; first say, Peace be to this house.

 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you againóLuke 10:5,6.

 

 Each laborer in the present harvest should note well the Lordís instruction in these verses. Wherever the Lordís representatives go, peace should go not strife confusion, turmoil, quarelling. True, the Truth will prove to a sword that will arouse opposition, yet it should be the Truth that causes the opposition and division, and not any rudeness or unkindness of word or action on the part of the Lordís representatives. There are plenty of things to aggravate mankind in this our busy and all who have received the Truth should receive also its spirit ďspeaking peace through Jesus Christí.
