ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God. 

Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 

Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Depart from evil and do good. 

Enter ye in at the strait gate. 

Fight the good fight of faith. 

Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law.

Ho, every one that thirsteth, come. 

I will arise and go to my father. 

Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever. 

Knock and it shall be opened unto you.

Love worketh no ill to his neighbor. 

My soul waiteth for the Lord. 

None other name is given among men whereby we must be saved. 

One faith, one Lord, one baptism. 

Pray without ceasing. 

Quench not the Spirit. 

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth. 

Seek ye first the kingdom of God. 

Teach me thy way, O Lord 

Uphold me with thy free Spirit. 

Vow and pay unto the Lord your God. 

Watch ye, therefore, and pray always. 

'Xcept a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of Heaven. 

Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 

Zealous of good works.


A person who was addressing a company of children on the subject of swearing, said to them: 

"I hope, dear children, that you will never Let your lips speak profane words. But now I want to tell you of a kind of swearing which I heard a good woman speak about not long ago. She called it' wooden swearing.' It's a kind of swearing that many people besides children are given to, when they are angry. Instead of giving vent to their feelings in oaths, they slam the doors, kick the chairs, stamp on the floor, throw the furniture about, and make all the noise they possibly can. 'Isn't this just the same as swearing?' said she. It's just the same kind of feeling, exactly, only they do not like to say those awful words; but they force the furniture to make the noise, and so I call it ‘wooden swearing.' I hope, dear children, that you will not do any of this kind of swearing either. It is better to let alone wooden swearing, and all other kinds of swearing." 

The Little Christian.

LEARN to entwine with your prayers the small cares, the trifling sorrows, the little wants of daily life. Whatever affects you, be it a changed look, an altered tone, an unkind word, a wrong, a wound, a demand you cannot meet, a charge you cannot notice, a sorrow you cannot disclose, turn it into prayer and send it up to God. 

Disclosures you may not make to man you can make to the Lord. Man may be too little for your great matters: God is not too great for your small ones. Only give yourself to prayer, whatever be the occasion that calls for it.
