Nugffets of Truth. John Newton: I believe Ood never gives his people much of a victory over tho world till he has left them to feel how great Is Jtb nower over them. Matthew Henry: If wo go as far as wo can In the way of our duty, God will direct and enable ua to do thnt which of ourselves we cannot do. "Up and bo doing nnd the Lord will bo with thee." F. W. Fnrrnr, D. D.: Remember that If the opportunities for great deeds should never come, the opportunity for good dcedB Is re-newed for you day by day, Tho thing tor rus to long for is tbc goodness, not the glory. jonn wesiey: un every occasion or un easiness we should retire to prayer, that we msy glvo place to the graco and light of God: and then form our resolutions, without being In any pain about what success thoy may nave. F. W. Robertson: To mo this Is tho nro- roundest 1 of all truths that tho wholo of the life of God Is tho sacrifice of self. God is lovo: love is Bocriucc, to give rather than receive tho blessednesB of self-glvlng. If tho life of God were not aucb It would be falsehood to Bay tnnt God Is love. , . A j tne nre ot uoa is n now or tarn divine, soli-giving charity. Lutheran: If you would Increase your happiness and prolong your life, forget your neighbors .faults. Forget all tho slander you have ever heard. Forget tho temptations. Forget tho fault-nndlng and give a lituo thought to the cause which provoked It Forget tho peculiarities of your friends and only remember tho good points which mnko you fond of them. Trinities and Sanctities: How benut'ful become nil the "little" things of life when we sco more of divinity in the human! Slralght-wny wo lcnrn there are no "little" things. It Is the humnn consciousness, untransformod by divinity, which bolittlcH or magnifies until all right proportion in lost. Tho world waits crentlon wnlts, for tho anointing of our blind eyes.
