Chapter 7

Blessed of the Father

SISTERS who desire whole-heartedly and faithfully to "labour much in the Lord" will become possessed of the secret of wise and useful lives. They will diffuse joy and happiness to others, and "lay up for themselves a good foundation against the time to come." Who are the blest?

They who have kept their sympathies awake. And scatter joy for more than conscience sake; Steadfast and tender in the hour of need, Gentle in thought, benevolent in deed; Whose looks have power to make dissension cease, Whose smiles are pleasant, and whose words are peace; They who have lived as harmless as a dove, Teachers of truth, and ministers of Love.

 

This is the ideal, poetically expressed, of every worthy sister who aspires to be among the "blessed of the Father" in the great joy of inspection. In endeavouring to reach unto it she will be ever watchful for her Lord, having her lamp well trimmed against the day of His coming. She will use her talents with diligence and care, and will carry out all her works of mercy and ministration in the spirit of the Master's words, "Inasmuch as ye did it unto the least of these my brethren, ye did it unto me."
