Morning Thoughts for Every Day of the Year

EPHESIANS 4:20 But ye have not so learned Christ;

CHRISTIANS are not to live as other people do. Something far better is expected of them.

They have come out from the world, and they are to show the world an example of heavenly life. They are to walk not as other Gentiles walk.

Those who have learned Christ should put away all the evil things of their former life, and be renewed in the spirit of their mind.

They should put away falsehood and speak truth with their neighbors. If they get angry they should be sure not to hold hate in their hearts overnight. Let not the sun go down upon your wrath. If they had ever stolen, they should steal no more, but should earn by honest labour whatever they get. They should keep special watch over their speech, never speaking any corrupt words. They should utter only words that will do good, imparting grace, making people happier and better. They should be careful never to do anything to grieve the Holy Spirit. They should keep their hearts free from all bitter thoughts and should be kind to everybody.

EVENING: THE HUMAN NOT ENOUGH

SOMETIMES we are in danger of putting our trust in our human friends rather than in the divine Friend. God comes to us still in human forms. He reveals His sympathy and love through human hearts. He speaks to us through human lips. He guides us by human hands. But if the human be all we get, if we do not learn to cling to God, and lean upon the divine arm beneath the human arm, and look to God for the blessings we want, dark for us will be the hour when the human falls away and we are left alone in the darkness. Wherever, in whatever form and by whomsoever you are led first to know God, be sure that it is God you know and trust.
