The marks of discipleship with Jesus are kindness and sympathy to the sorrowing and unfortunate of mankind. Of all people in the world, the follower of Jesus should always see the best in others and do everything possible to assist in life's venture. As a tree is known by its fruit, so the disciple of Jesus is known by his daily actions. Religion lived and practiced can send a warmth into the hearts of other people, bringing sunshine into lives that are dreary and monotonous, and winning men for the kingdom of God. Many today only require proof of the sincerity of our religion to be pulled out of the morass of doubt and despair, and set on the road to God. Solitary souls in life would find new joy and gladness if there were less "churchianity" and more Christianity; les pious, self-contented religious snobbery and more of the warmth of the religion of Jesus. A handshake, a smile, a pleasant word of greeting will make all the difference to those who are having a hard and bitter fight in the stern battle of life. And our own lives will become happier by trying to make others happy....
