Kind and True

One of the most markedly characteristic features of our Lord's life was his compassion. His judgment was always flavored by affection. He was fair in his criticism and kind even in his severities. How manifest this, in his treatment of the adulterous woman, of Judas, and of Peter! When one of his nearest and most trusted disciples dishonored every pledge of fealty, and in the crucial hour cravenly denied him, the offense was punished, and that sufficiently, with but a look. Surely the heart of the Master was a haven for storm-tossed men, whether they had been true to their compass and chart or no, and the poet did not overdraw his portrait in the familiar lines,—

So meek, forgiving, godlike, high,
So glorious in humility.
