Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JANUARY 10

Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience—Jas. 5:10.

 

 The right path is still the “narrow path” of self-abasement and self-denial—the path of meekness and humility—and it will require as much effort and grace to walk it this year as last, or possibly more; for the more we grow in grace and knowledge, the stronger will be the temptations to be boastful puffed up, heady’, high-minded; and the higher we climb in faith and hope and love and activity in the Lord’s service, the more the great Adversary will oppose our progress, and the more his emissaries will slander, backbite and generally seek to injure us.
