MAY 19

 

 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselvesóRom. 15:1.

 

Principles may never be abandoned for any consideration; but liberties and personal rights may be ignored in the interest of others frequently and to Divine pleasing. The Apostle Paul was ready to go to any length in defense of principle (Gal. 2:5,11), but in the sacrifice of his earthly rights and privileges and liberties for the sake of Christ and the Church, the Apostle evidently came next to our Lord Jesus and is a noble example to all the Church.
