Love the Daily Tasks

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.
         --2 CHRONICLES 31:21

      HELP me in Christ to learn to do Thy will,
      That I may have from Him eternal life;
      And here on earth Thy perfect love fulfil,
      Then home return victorious from the strife.
         -JONES VERY

      THERE is no other way in which one's life will be so surely, so quickly transfigured, as in the faithful, happy, cheerful doing of every-day tasks. We need to remember that this world is not so much a place for doing things as for making character. Right in the midst of what some people call drudgery is the very best place to get the transformed, transfigured life. The doing of common tasks patiently, promptly, faithfully, cheerfully, makes the character beautiful and bright. But we must take heed always that we do our tasks, whatever they are, with love in our heart. Doing any kind of work unwillingly, with complaint and murmuring, hurts the life.
         --J. R. MILLER

      God weigheth more with how much love a man worketh, than how much he doeth. He doeth much that loveth much. He doeth much that doeth a thing well.
         --THOMAS KEMPIS
