When heaven endows you with all gifts, you are an incomplete being if you stay still in your corner instead of taking advantage of your real value.
—Marie Bashkirtseff.

Life, which ought to be a thing complete in itself, and ought to be spent partly in gathering materials, and partly in drawing inferences, is apt to be a hurried accumulation lasting to the edge of the tomb. We are put into the world, I cannot help feeling, to be rather than do.
—Arthur C. Benson.

Jehovah is the strength of my life.
—Psalm 27. 1.
________________________________________
Heavenly Father, I pray that thou wilt reverse my standards of life if I may be striving only for selfish gain. May I care for all that I could be, and may I care for where I should be found, but, most of all, may I care for what I really am. Help me to keep my mind on thee that I may find delight in doing thy will. Amen.
