Principles and Practices - November 20


Faith is the highest honour we can render to Divine truth. It is also a debt we owe to God; He has a right to expect implicit trust in His word, and we should give proof of this trust when He tries our faith. Such tests are the law of life; they strengthen the virtue which is tested and add lustre to it; above all, they are occasions for glorifying and rendering homage to God.
