Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

FEBRUARY 27

 

Let your moderation be known unto all men—Phil. 4:5.

 

The Greek word here rendered “moderation” seems to carry with it the thought of reasonableness [gentleness], and of not exacting our rights too vigorously. Mercy and leniency are certainly qualities required of all who would be in the Kingdom with our Lord. Faithfulness in the performance, as far as possible, of all that justice would require of us, and mercifulness in respect to all our requirements of justice from others should be our rule; so shall we be the children of our Father which is in heaven, for He is kind and merciful to the unthankful.
