Stett St, With Office In LuVerne, Iowa ALGONA 'To those who by patience in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. — Romans 2:17 Doing good is difficult because it may require a certain measure of patience as well as a bit of effort. We may find it difficult to sit still and stay quiet when things do not go to please us. We may be inclined to give faint attention to the problems of others, particularly if we are inconvenienced in some manner. So, be patient. Exercise understanding. Strive to see the other fellow's problem and position. And, when the time comes, be prepared to do what • you can for the good of those with whom you come in contact. You will be eternally blessed.
