Principles and Practices - November 26


Let it never be told that we care so little for Christ, that we make so little account of the most illustrious actions which He performed for our example, and that we show Him so little love. Let us often ponder what He has suffered for us, and the unconquerable patience with which he suffered; and let us do this in particular when tribulations assail us, in order that we may reproduce in ourselves the features of His wondrous endurance.
