ATKINS STEADFAST . . add . . . to temperance, patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. Read II Peter 1:1-9. These fi/th and sixth verses lave been called the symphony of Christian Character, each quality combining to create a full toned narmony with patience at the_very heart'of it. Some translations say--"stead- fastriess" instead of "patience.' Better, perhaps, for steadfastness is more positive than patience. Patience endures; steadfastness holds its front. Patience out- bears what tries it, steadfastness outstands and withstands what challenges it. Life needs steadfastness, always, and never more than now. Unless other people are steadfast, how can we depend upon them? Unless we are steadfast how can they count upon us? The steadfast are a shelter in the time o£ storm, a line which will not break when the day seems lost. But steadfast lor the right, of course. The steadfast in love, in goodness, are always the hope of the world, the soldiers oE the common good. Prayer: Lord of Good Courage, make us partakers of Thine own divine steadfastness. Make us wise in the causes we serve anc clear visioned in the ends we seek, that being established in devotion to the Kingdom, we may be found steadfast in every gooc cause, confident in the Captain of our Salvation. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
