To make your people understand what righteousness is, this must be the basis of all your teaching.
There is no persuasiveness more effectual than the transparency of a single heart, of a sincere life.
Eternal truth, eternal righteousness, eternal love; these only can triumph, for these only can endure.
Yes, God is the end of your work, but He is the beginning also.

God helping me, I will help my brothers and sisters in Christ, because they are my brothers and sisters.
Try to help others. Consult their weaknesses, relieve their maladies; strive to raise them up, and by so doing you will most effectually raise yourself up also.
If you are apostles at all, you are apostles, not of men, nor by man. Your sufficiency is of God.
But there is another danger besetting your path. I mean the error of regarding your own capacities instead of your work, of putting self-consciousness in place of God.
Yes, forget your weakness, whatever that weakness may be. It is egotism, it is selfishness after. all, for it is a dwelling on self. Forget your weakness; and remember your strength.
I will not be discouraged by failure; I will not be elated by success.
The success and the failure are not my concern, but His.
We do not realise that we are children of eternity. If we did, then success would be no success, and failure would be no failure to us.
The tillage of the soil occupies the vast majority of those who work for their own bread.
This is God's work. Therefore it must be triumphant. There is no place for misgiving or despondency.
