Principles and Practices - December 26


The want of this sense causes Him who is the Life of life and the Light of our days to be too often the Great Unknown. He is really and truly the unbidden Guest at every meal, the silent Listener to every conversation, the Judge and Discerner of every transaction, the ministering Comforter in every day of darkness, and in the lone night of our sorrow the Friend that sticks closer than a brother; and yet we know Him not.
