the means, time, influence, and educational advantages,
but what he will do with the things he has."
"The Lord has filled me with joy ... I'm not saying this because I'm
in any need. I've learned to be content in whatever situation I'm in.
I know how to live in poverty or prosperity. No matter what the situation,
I've learned the secret of how to live when I'm full or when I'm hungry,
when I have too much or when I have too little. I can do everything through
Christ who strengthens me."

"All that we behold is full of blessings."
- William Wordsworth
"You take care of the earth and water it,
making it rich and fertile.
The river of God has plenty of water;
it provides a bountiful harvest of grain,
for you have ordered it so.
You drench the plowed ground with rain,
melting the clods and leveling the ridges.
You soften the earth with showers
and bless its abundant crops.
You crown the year with a bountiful harvest;
even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the wilderness become a lush pasture,
and the hillsides blossom with joy.
The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep,
and the valleys are carpeted with grain.
They all shout and sing for joy!"

The Unforgiving Spirit -
"In the sight of God, in the affairs of the soul, there is neither great nor little. That unforgiven wrong, real or imaginary, lies like the nether millstone upon thy soul.
The spirit of the unforgiving is incompatible with the state of the forgiven. Love is the region in which forgiveness works. Blessing and cursing dwell not together,
nor can the love of God rest where the love of man is not. “That your prayers be not hindered” is the motive for domestic peace“if ye forgive not,
neither can God forgive,” is the plea for washing away all unkindness ere we draw nigh to God’s altar."
- C. J. Vaughan
From: The Christadelphian Magazine
Volume 73, Page 448 - 1936
