JANUARY 23

Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God—1.Cor. 7:24,

Duties may at times seem to conflict, but they do not really do so. A Christian’s first duty is his hearty acknowledgment of his Creator and Lord, in all his ways. His second duty, if he be a husband and father, is toward his wife and children; or if she be a wife and mother, it is toward her husband and children. The marriage contract, by Divine arrangement, comes in as a first mortgage upon every husband’s time and upon every wife’s time—the demands of this mortgage must be reasonably met before anything can be properly done to or for outsiders.
