Is not this the fast that I have chosen?
And we earnestly beseech you, brethren, . . .
encourage the timid and fainthearted,
help and give your support to the weak souls,
[and] be very patient with everybody
[always keeping your temper].AMP
if this day
we have done or said anything
to increase the pain of the world.
Pardon the unkind word,
the impatient gesture,
the hard and selfish deed,
the failure to show sympathy and kindly help
where we had the opportunity,
but missed it;
and enable us so to live
that we may daily
to lessen the tide of human sorrow,
and add to the sum of human happiness.
F. B. Meyer
And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.
Enable me . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
