The whole duty of man in this Day is to attain that share of the flood of grace which God poureth forth for him. Let none, therefore, consider the largeness or smallness of the receptacle. The portion of some might lie in the palm of a man’s hand, the portion of others might fill a cup, and of others even a gallon-measure.
Every eye, in this Day, should seek what will best
promote the Cause of God. He, Who is the Eternal
Truth, beareth Me witness! Nothing whatever can,
in this Day, inflict a greater harm upon this Cause
than dissension and strife, contention, estrangement
and apathy, among the loved ones of God. Flee them,
through the power of God and His sovereign aid, and
strive ye to knit together the hearts of men, in His
Name, the Unifier, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
Beseech ye the one true God to grant that ye may
taste the savor of such deeds as are performed in
His path, and partake of the sweetness of such humility
and submissiveness as are shown for His sake. Forget
your own selves, and turn your eyes towards
your neighbor. Bend your energies to whatever may
foster the education of men. Nothing is, or can ever
be, hidden from God. If ye follow in His way, His incalculable
and imperishable blessings will be showered
upon you. This is the luminous Tablet, whose
verses have streamed from the moving Pen of Him
Who is the Lord of all worlds. Ponder it in your
hearts, and be ye of them that observe its precepts.
