Inscriptions for Inspiration

Self-preoccupation, self-broodings, self-interest, self-love...these are the reasons we jar each other.

Turn your eyes off yourself; look up and out! There are brothers and sisters; they have needs that you can aid.

Listen for their confidences; keep your heart wide open to their call, and your hands alert for their service.

Learn to give and not to take; to drown your own hungry wants in the happiness of lending yourself to fulfill the interests of those nearest or dearest.

Look up and out, from this narrow, cabined self of will find to your own glad surprise the secret of the meekness and gentleness of Jesus, and the fruits of the Spirit will all bud and blossom from out of your life.

"Joy and Strength"
