MAY 24

 Love…is not easily provoked—1.Cor. 13:4,5.


However natural depravity and heredity and nervous disorders may tend toward the spirit of fretfulness, taciturnity and touchiness, every heart filled with the Lord’s Spirit must oppose this disposition to evil in his flesh, and must wage a good warfare against it. It will not do to say, “it is my way”; for all the ways of the fallen nature are bad; it is the business of the new nature to overcome the old nature in this as well as other works of the flesh and the devil; and few show to our friends and households more than this of the power of the grace of Love. This grace as it grows should make every child of God sweet-tempered.
