I walk within my house with a perfect heart

I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.—Psalm 101:2.

 

Teach me, O God, Thy holy way,

And give me an obedient mind,

That in Thy service I may find

My soul’s delight from day to day.

William Tidd Matson.

 

As far as human frailty will permit, each little trifling piece of duty which presents itself to us in daily life, if it be only a compliance with some form of social courtesy, should receive a consecration, by setting God—His will, word, and Providence—before us in it, and by lifting up our hearts to Him in ejaculatory prayer, while we are engaged in it. The idea must be thoroughly worked into the mind, and woven into the texture of our spiritual life, that the minutest duties which God prescribes to us in the order of His Providence—a casual visit, a letter of sympathy, an obligation of courtesy, are not by any means too humble to be made means of spiritual advancement, if only the thing be done “as to the Lord, and not to men.

Edward Meyrick Goulburn.

 

Learn to commend thy daily acts to God, so shall the dry every-day duties of common life be steps to heaven, and lift thy heart thither.

Edward B. Pusey.
