By the Way

The Standard

Once when the Master was hurrying to the home of Jairus to raise his daughter from the dead, a poor, friendless woman touched the hem of his garment, and straight-way she was healed. He planned to save the ruler's daughter; he healed the woman by the way, without planning. Much of our best and worst work is done by the way. What we purpose to do expresses our wills; what we do by the way expresses our characters. We can do good by deliberately setting ourselves to do good, if we are not good. We may assume a virtue, if we have it not, we may play a part on the stage of life; but the work by the way is the real test of character.

O. P. Gifford, D.D., in The Standard (Baptist).
