Strength Today

Be devoted to one another with mutual love, showing eagerness in honoring one another. 

[Rom 12:10]

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and loving instruction is on her tongue. 

[Prov 31:26]


Since trifles make the sum of human things,
And half our misery from our foibles springs;

Since life’s best joys consist in peace and ease,

And though but few can serve, yet all can please;

Oh, let the ungentle spirit learn from hence,

A small unkindness is a great offence.


All usefulness and all comfort may be prevented by an unkind, a sour, crabbed temper of mind,—a mind that can bear with no difference of opinion or temperament. A spirit of fault-finding; an unsatisfied temper; a constant irritability; little inequalities in the look, the temper, or the manner; a brow cloudy and dissatisfied—your husband or your wife cannot tell why—will more than neutralize all the good you can do, and render life anything but a blessing.


You have not fulfilled every duty, unless you have fulfilled that of being pleasant.
