Principles and Practices - March 17

The Right View

Do not resent temptation; do not be per­plexed because it seems to thicken round you more and more, and ceases neither for effort, nor for agony or for prayer. That is your practice, which God appoints you, and it is having its effect in making you patient, and humble, and generous, and unselfish, and kind and courteous.
