WHOM SHALL WE TRY TO HELP
But Jesus was wise in the ways of the world as well as in heavenly wisdom, and he counselled his followers against attempting to help people when they wished no help; he said, "And when ye come into an house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you." This is a lesson which sincere students of the truth often discover to their great chagrin. People do not always receive their message and when this happens there should be no controversy, no argument, and no sense of disturbance; but, abiding in a conviction of the ultimate acceptance of truth by all, they should let their peace return unto themselves and go calmly on their way, unprejudiced, non-combative, but certain of themselves. If, however, they are called upon to defend their faith they should remember that the spirit indwelling their lives will put the very words into their mouths which they should speak; for the great teacher said, "It is not ye that speak but the spirit of your Father which speaketh in you." Never forget that there is an indwelling Spirit which knows.
