the Second Week of Lent
Daily Light on the Daily Path
Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou
knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day
of salvation. Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk
while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he
that walketh in darkness knoweth not where he goeth. While ye
have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of
Whatever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for
there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the
grave, where thou goest.
Soul, thou hast abundance of goods laid up for many years;
take thy ease, eat, drink, and be merry. . . . Thou fool,
this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall
those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that
layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

Thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and
cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no
variableness, neither shadow of turning. The gifts and calling

man, that he should repent. It is of the LORD’S mercies that
we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
This man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable
priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the
uttermost that come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make
intercession for them. Fear not; I am the first and the last.
