July Fifth

Salient Thought for the Day.
No man can perform any service bigger or better
than his thoughts inspire him to do.


Lines To Memorize
Let him speak whose spirit flows like the river in
flood-time, full and strong; Let others keep silent—
The tongue that speak soulless words But scatter
pebbles before hungry mouths.


There is a selfish type of humanity which does not
sense what is happening to others, but a man who
has evolved his soul nature and found access to the
higher realm, that one is full of concern for his neighbor.
We cannot afford to sever ourselves from our fellow-man.
We do not realize this so long as we have not established
an inward relationship with him. Until we know God as
our Father, we shall not feel that he is really our brother
and our service will always have an element of selfishness in it.


All-loving Father and Mother of this universe,
I lift my prayer to Thee in humble supplication.
Free me from all pettiness and smallness;
Help me to consecrate all my efforts and thoughts
to Thy service; Fill my heart with fresh inspiration
and strength. May all my words and thoughts
and actions be worthy of Thy loving blessing.
