From Our Exchanges

[The Christian Register]

The spiritual assets of the world are enormous, beyond men's common belief. Religion is like radium. Wherever you try it, wonders are worked; but the world has seen so little of it that most men almost doubt its existence. The faith in goodness at the heart of the universe, the open mind that follows truth, the friendly heart, the law of the constant good will, what men call "the Spirit of Christ" (which we may see even in those who do not profess a belief in Christ),—these things are infinite in their reach and momentum. They change lives; they make homes beautiful; they are strong enough to build cities, to bind states together, to maintain the peace of the world. Religion is like radium, but it is unlike radium in that there is an infinite supply to draw upon. It is herein like a mighty reservoir. [Zion's Herald]

What we do with our religion is a pretty good test of how much religion we have. If we keep it to ourselves, we have not very much of it. A sure way to impoverish our soul's growth is to lock up in our own hearts what little religion we may have, and try to keep it there. It won't stay. We shall find ourselves losing that little which we have, and we shall note that we are growing lean in our souls.
