The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;…
How many are longing for grand spheres in which to serve God. They admire heroic men and women who have been bold for the truth, and wish they had some daring opportunity in which to exhibit Christian heroism and endurance. St. Paul says to such persons (1 Timothy 5:4), "I will tell you of a place where you can show forth all that is beautiful and glorious in the Christian character, and that place is the domestic circle; "Let them first learn to show piety at home." Indeed, if a man does not serve God on a small scale, he never will serve Him on a large one.
(J. N. Natron.)
