The Word that Echoes Throughout the World
Tradition says that when they carried Saint John for the last time into the
church, he lifted up his feeble hands to the listening congregation, and said,
"Little children, love one another."
The words are echoing yet throughout the world.
More precious and important even than faith is heavenly love. Without
it faith must ultimately wither. Many of God's most powerful workers after
a time lose their power because they lose the spirit of love. This is the
crowning grace of Christian character. It has a thousand shades, and it is
in the finer touches that its glory consists. Every new experience
of life is but a school to learn some lesson of love. Let us not try to expel
our teachers. Let us welcome them and so learn the lesson, that they
may soon pass on and leave us to make new advances.
