When you are tempted to complain and have self-pity at the narrowness of your circumstances and the limitations of your sphere, remember that for thirty years, Jesus found room in a humble peasant home for worthy living and for service, not unfitted to His exalted character.
If you can do nothing but live a true Christian life–patient, gentle, kindly, pure–in your home, in society, and at your daily duty, then you will perform a service of great value and leave many blessings in the world. Such a life is a little gospel, telling in sermons without words, the wonderful story of the cross of Christ.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
