The innermost of life is taught,
The mystery dimly understood,
That love of God is love of good:
That to be saved is only this—
Salvation from our selfishness.
Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: love therefore is the fulfillment of the law. And this, knowing the season, that already it is time for you to awake out of sleep: for now is salvation nearer to us than when we first believed.
—Romans 13. 10, 11.
Tender Father, may I not attempt to serve life for my own gratification. May I not interpret love through vanity, but from reality. Make me worth while, that I may be relied upon for my pledges, and needed for my services. Amen.
