"All things"

St. paul said, "All things work together for good to them that love God." He did not say, Some things work together for good. Nor did he say, Most things work together for good, but, "all things." The truth of this statement is demonstrable. There is no circumstance that cannot be turned into a blessing when attention is given to the latter part of Paul's statement as well as to its beginning. This lovely promise is "to them that love God." If we are to benefit by it, we must make sure that we love God truly.

In two of his epistles John, the beloved disciple, has much to say about love. To test our love for God according to these demands, we must ask ourselves whether we keep the commandments, and whether we love our brother in deed as well as in word. Does not this practical love, described by John, call upon us to think of our brother as Christ Jesus thought of the real man, in his dealings with humanity?
