OCTOBER 18

 

 He that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great wasteróProv. 18:9.

 

 We cannot see wastefulness in any of the Lordís consecrated people without feeling that, however great progress they have made in understanding the mind of the Lord in some respects, they are still deficient in this particular. An appreciation of the gift and respect for the Giver implies carefulness and a stewardship in respect to all that comes to us from our Heavenly Father things temporal and things spiritual. According to our Lordís parables, He is measuring our love and zeal in a considerable degree by our use or abuse of the talents, opportunities, blessings, temporal and spiritual, now bestowed upon us.
