Pity the sorrows and sufferings of the poor. Disdain
not to enter their wretched abodes, nor to listen to their
moving lamentations.
Gratitude is a delightful emotion. The grateful heart
at once performs its duty, and endears itself to others.
If we ought to be grateful for services received from our
friends, how should our hearts glow with thankfulness to
Him, who has given us being, and all the blessings we
enjoy!
Young people too often set out in life, with too much
confidence in themselves. Alas! how little do they know
the dangers which await them!
To repine at the improvements of others, and wish to
deprive them of the praise they have deserved, is an
envious and odious disposition.
We ought not to be proud or vain of the advantages we
possess; but humbly endeavour to use them for the benefit
of our fellow-creatures, and the glory of that great Being
from whom we have received them.
If we consider how much the comfort, or the uneasiness
of ail around us, depends on the state of our own temper,
we should surely endeavour to render it sweet and accom-
modating.
When we feel our inability to resist evil, and to do
good, whnt a comfort it is, to know that our heavenly
Father will, if we humbly apply to him, hear our prayers,
and graciously assist us!
When young persons are afflicted with illness, how greatly
do they endear themselves to all about them, by being
tractable, considerate, gentle, and grateful; but how painful
it is, to see them peevish, self-willed, and unthankful!
How much do the former qualities lessen the affliction,
and the latter increase it!
A family, where the great Father of the universe is duly
reverenced, where parents are honoured and obeyed, where
brothers and sisters dwell together in love and harmony.
