Signs of the Times

[The Bishop of Southwark, in the Holy Trinity Parish Magasine, Halifax, Yorkshire, England]

How often we notice the difference with which two persons do exactly the same task. The one does it as a duty which must be honestly and conscientiously fulfilled; no one can complain of the way in which he has performed it; he has done what he was set to do and there's the end of it. But the other doing the same work lifts it to a higher level; he finds in it possibilities of which the other was ignorant; he turns it into a golden offering to God. Into our prayers, then, we bring the longing that God may show us how to use fully and rightly any of these opportunities which come to us in the ordinary daily conditions of our lives.
