"WE FALL TO RISE, ... SLEEP TO WAKE"

A young student was one day earnestly scanning the pages of a well-worn copy of Shakespeare's plays when she suddenly exclaimed, "Well, that is not the truth!" When questioned, she quoted the line with which she disagreed, "'Sweet are the uses of adversity,'" and then commented, "There's nothing sweet about adversity." A statement of Paul's once affected the writer similarly. His words (II Cor. 12:10), "I take pleasure in infirmities," invariably brought out the audible, forceful exclamation, "Well, I don't."

There came a time in later years when through a sense of sudden accident and injury the one who had scoffed at the statements referred to learned a much-needed lesson. She cried out appealingly one day to the Father, "O God, tell me what to do." Immediately came the answer, "Let go," to which the sufferer responded: "What am I holding on to? What shall I let go of?" In response to that human cry came the following words: "Everything material."
