A hearer of the word . . . a doer of the work. —James 1:23, 25

Religion may be learned on Sunday, but it is lived in the week-day’s work. The torch of religion may be lit in the church, but it does its burning in the shop and on the street. Religion seeks its life in prayer, but it lives its life in deeds. It is planted in the closet, but it does its growing out in the world. It plumes itself for flight in songs of praise, but its actual flights ...

Having therefore these promises. —2 Corinthians 7:1

The forests in summer days are full of birds’ nests. They are hidden among the leaves. The little birds know where they are; and when a storm arises, or when night draws on, they fly, each to his own nest.

There are no castles in this world so ...
