Opportunities For Exercising Charity
None of us liveth to himself; no man or woman should. Yet in this country what an immense amount of power is lost—lost to God, and to the world!
I know a person in an humble position—she is a blacksmith’s wife—who, sparing some hours each day for the work, has educated not a few of the neglected children where she resides.
Her name though unknown to fame, is known to heaven; and, better than on gold or marble is graven on loving hearts. How many woman there are, who, treading in her humble footsteps, could change a languid into a bright, happy blessed life!
In this world of sin and misery, time ought not to be wasted on trifles; well-spent hours, like drops of oil spreading on the waters diffuse themselves in blessing and pleasure all the day.—GUTHRIE.
