YOU may read many good books, listen to many wise thoughts, and make emphatic personal resolutions, but until you have the Spirit of Good consciously active in your daily life, you will not reach true greatness. It is useful to fill your mind with rich and lofty truths, though their real value to you depends upon the practical use you make of them. Apply the truths which you now possess, and still greater truth will be revealed to you.

The highest standard is not too high for you to choose as your constant guide. God’s ways are higher than your ways, and he is constantly pouring forth his inexhaustible supply of perfect ideas, which are yours for the mere taking and using. You have a great and Godly heritage, but you must claim it for yourself.
