LET every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification " Horn. 15. 2. It is the believer's business to be the most considerate, sympathetic, courteous and companionable of people, within the lines of the will of God. Let this be well remembered, with reflection and sanctified good sense and prayer. Otherwise, we may be merely disagreeable, and mistake this for fidelity to principle ; we may be justly avoided for our own sakes and think that this is " bearing the reproach of Christ " and " going forth to Him Without the gate.''
