for the Day
Ambition kills spirituality. Do everything humbly and without ostentation.
Lines to Memorize
The dark walls of night stood before me as if in grim defiance, barring my vision.
I searched for light but the face of the dark was ever before me.
"Light! Light! My soul cries for light!
Help me to find the light!"
Some people are made more mellow, more humble when they have success and glory; others lose their point of view. A common man always asserts his own attainments, while a superior man is only conscious that it is God manifesting through his bigger talents and lesser ones, through his success and failure, through his happiness and misery. In all his experiences he tries to realize one fact alone----that God's will is being fulfilled through his life, through his thought, through his activities.
O Thou Eternal and Infinite Being,
I find my delight in Thy vastness and majesty.
Teach me to be Thy true child, humble and pure of heart.
May the glamour of the world never blind me to Thy glory.
Thou art the One to be loved and worshipped.
Reveal to me Thy all-abiding Spirit,
And keep me ever in Thy peace.
