Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JANUARY 15

 

What doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?—Micah 6:8.

 

 That these are very reasonable requirements will be conceded by all. That God could not require less from those whom He is educating for the future judging of the world, is evident; and yet, all three of these qualities specified through the Prophet, are comprehended in the one word, Love. Love requires that we shall deal justly with our neighbors, with the brethren, with our families, with ourselves; that we shall seek to cultivate our appreciation of the rights of others—their physical rights, their moral and intellectual rights, their liberties; and that, appreciating these, we shall in no sense of the word abridge or deny them.
