From my schoolwork this morning just three sentences from two chapters rich in thought and meaning.

 

The Lord has no place in His work

for those who have a greater desire

to win the crown

than to bear the cross.

He wants men who are more intent

upon doing their duty

than upon receiving their reward

men who are more solicitous

for principle than for promotion.

We are to live,

not to guard our feelings or our reputation,

but to save souls.

 
(Ministry of Healing chapters “Help in Daily Living” and “In Contact With Others”)
