Signs of the Times
J. G. Penney © Christian Herald, January, 1969 New York, New York
It is encouraging to find that there are still men who are ready to go to the South Pole, to man satellites.... There are challenges everywhere. They are found in the realm of the spiritual as well as business fields. Those who respond are those who are prepared for self-denying effort.
The Savior of men said a hard thing when he urged, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." Yet, in stressing the way, he provided, as always, the power to obey. True self-reliance is within the context of confidence in the inner power which God gives. There may have been times when I have accepted the title "self-made man" but I have always known that the roots of success were deep in my home teaching, and the vital faith which I inherited and later made my own. However, the knowledge that the Creator is a copartner can never eliminate the necessity for hard work. Self-reliance surely means boundless confidence in God-given abilities and unwavering determination to use them. Time has to be regarded as divinely provided opportunity, to be used carefully, and most reverently.
