For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.
Mrs. Appleton, of Boston, the daughter of Daniel Webster, was dying, after a long illness. The great lawyer, after pleading an important cause in the courtroom, on his way home stopped at the house of his daughter and went into her sick room. She said to him, "Father, why are you out today in this cold weather without an overcoat?" The great lawyer went into the next room, and was in a flooder tears, saying, "Dying herself, yet thinking only of me." Oh! how much more beautiful is care for others than this everlasting taking care of ourselves!
(T. De Witt Talmage.)
