Daily Walk

I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day;

I'd rather one would walk with me than merely show the way;

The eye's a better pupil, and more willing than the ear;

Fine counsel is confusing, but example's always clear.

The best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds,

For to see good put in action is what everybody needs,

I soon can learn to do it, if you let me see it done,

I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run.

 

The lectures you deliver may be very wise and true,

But I'd rather get my lessons by observing what you do:

I may not understand the high advice you give,

But there's no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.

Keep in touch with God.

 

Anxious for nothing,
Thankful for anything,
Prayerful about everything.
S.D. Gordon

 

To love is better, nobler, more elevating, and more sure, than to be loved. To love is to have found that which lifts us above ourselves; which makes us capable of sacrifice; which unseals the forces of another world. He who loved has gained the highest tribute of earth; he who loves has entered into the spirit of heaven. The love which comes to us must always be allowed with the sad sense of our own unworthiness. The love which goes out from us is kept bright by the ideal to which it is directed. - Wescott

 

 

When the long life's day is ended,

And we stand before the throne,

What will it matter, Lord? Not very much,

Which of us owned the office, and

Which the scrubbing brush?

 

A MISSIONARY IS:--God's man, in God's place, doing God's work, in God's way, for God's glory.
