Signs of the Times

Topic: Daily Living

[W. R. Matthews, D. D., Dean of St. Paul's, in the Christian World Pulpit, London, England]

If we could—and shall we not?—once more believe that this newness of life can be ours, if every morning we would resolve this day, "I will walk with Christ along the streets; when I meet other people I will be walking with him," our sky would clear, our dull and heavy depression would lift, the environment in which our life is cast would become suffused with light from beyond, we should look at our fellows with fresh eyes and find them full of interest, and our fixed and settled selves, as as we think them, would become transformed. There would still be sorrow to bear, labor and disappointment would not vanish out of life, but we should never find it flat and stale and unprofitable again. New every morning it would be with faith and courage and love.
