Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

FEBRUARY 7

 

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the lawŚRom. 13:10.

 

He who finds his heart not in harmony with this law of the New Covenant, loveŚmercy, kindness, gentleness, goodness lacks the evidence or proof that he is in any sense of the word accepted as a son of God and a follower of Christ. If we have not love in our hearts for the brethren, and the love of gentleness and benevolence toward all men, and even toward the brute creation, we have not the spirit which will carry us through in making the sacrifices necessary under present conditions. It will only be a question of time with such when the power of pride or vain-glory, holding them in the way of sacrifice, will snap asunder, and selfishness take full control.
