Thoughts of the day.

No sooner is one converted than there is born within him a desire to make known to others what a precious friend he has found in Jesus. Desire of Ages, p. 141.

The servants of Christ are not to act out the dictates of the natural heart. They need to have close communion with God, lest, under provocation, self rise up, and they pour forth a torrent of words that are unbefitting…. The spirit that is kept gentle under provocation will speak more effectively in favor of the truth than will any argument, however forcible. Desire of Ages, p. 353
