January 18

THINE are all the gifts, O God!
Thine the broken bread;
Let the naked feet be shod,
And the starving fed.

Let Thy children, by Thy Grace,
Give as they abound,
Till the poor have breathing space,
And the lost are found.
John G. Whittier


EVERY man, in proportion as he is a true son of the Highest, feels that he cannot stand by, seeing misery and guilt within his reach, and say, “It is no concern of mine;” he knows himself responsible for all the wrong he might prevent, as well as for all he may positively do.
James Martineau


TRULY at the day of judgment we shall not be examined as to what we have read, but as to what we have done; not how well we have spoken, but how religiously we have lived.
Thomas A Kempis
