OCTOBER 6

 

 Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of The Son of man is not come to destroy menís lives, but to save themóLuke 9:55,56.

 

 So with all the Lordís disciples: their continual study should be to avoid that hypercritical disposition to sentence and to destroy other people, while desiring mercy for themselves. The rule which the Lord establishes is that we must expect from Him mercy only in proportion as we shall exercise this grace toward others. The fault-finding disposition that is ready to accuse and condemn everybody, indicates a wrong condition of heart, one against which all the Lordís people should be on guard. Mercy, goodness, we, are the elements of character which He desires to see in the spiritual Israelites, and with out which we cannot long continue to be His children.
