[Manna - May 11]
For Thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter. Psalm 44:22
WE are to remember that we have each but one sacrifice; that it is to be rendered to the Lord day by day in the improvement of every opportunity as it comes to us, to serve Him and His. We are to remember that while it consists of many little sacrifices, some of them too small to mention or even to consider, nevertheless it will require all of these to complete the one sacrifice which we made at the beginning of our induction into His family. When we gave our wills, we gave our all; and any holding back in any of the little affairs of life --any refusal to sacrifice that which we think would please the Lord--is a keeping back of that much of what we have devoted to Him.
