Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JANUARY 18

Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord—Rom. 12:11.

 

Let all who would run the race successfully look well to their zeal and activity in the Lord’s work. If we bury our one or many talents under a weight of worldly cares and encumbrances which might be avoided or set aside; if we bury them under worldly ambitions for either self or family—whether this be by wasting consecrated time upon science, philosophy, music, art, business, politics, pleasures, or in pampering pride and appetite—then as unfaithful servants we shall ultimately go into outer darkness.
