January 25 – If ye know these things
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.—JOHN xiii. 17.
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.—JAMES iv. 17.
We cannot kindle when we will
The fire that in the heart resides,
The spirit bloweth and is still,
In mystery our soul abides:
But tasks in hours of insight willed
Can be through hours of gloom fulfilled.
Hurt not your conscience with any known sin.
Deep-rooted customs, though wrong, are not easily altered; but it is the duty of all to be firm in that which they certainly know is right for them.
He often acts unjustly who does not do a certain thing; not only he who does a certain thing.
Every duty we omit obscures some truth we should have known.
