DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 23:23-44; Psalms 135:1-136:25; Mark 9:14 -32

Let no man despise thy youth. 1 Timothy 4:12

I was in Jamestown, New York, to preach the gospel. While there I needed a hair cut. With the task completed, my hostess, her driver son, and I exited the shop. We all noticed that the door didn’t work properly. The young man with me stopped, reached up and made some adjustments. In a few minutes springs and wires yielded to his fingers, and it worked perfectly. The owner may never have known of his kindness but I heard his mother say, “Just like his father.” I’m wondering if another voice was heard saying, “Well done, good and faithful servant” (Matt. 25:23). Regardless of age, how will you and I be helpful examples of the Lord Jesus today? —Arnot P. McIntee

Take my life, and let it be, consecrated, Lord to Thee;
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.—F. Havergal
