Daily Strength for Daily Needs – March 3

March 3

I made haste, and delayed not to keep Thy commandments.--PS. cxix. 60.

Ye know not what shall be on the morrow.--JAMES iv. 14.

      Never delay
  To do the duty which the hour brings,
  Whether it be in great or smaller things;
      For who doth know
  What he shall do the coming day?
ANON.

It is quite impossible that an idle, floating spirit can ever look up with
clear eye to God; spreading its miserable anarchy before the symmetry of
the creative Mind; in the midst of a disorderly being, that has neither
centre nor circumference, kneeling beneath the glorious sky, that
everywhere has both; and for a life that is _all_ failure, turning to the
Lord of the silent stars, of whose punctual thought it is, that "not one
faileth." The heavens, with their everlasting faithfulness, look down on no
sadder contradiction, than the sluggard and the slattern in their prayers.
J. MARTINEAU.
