Colonial Agent of the American Colony of LiberiaNow the lesson which this incident affords us, is, that the spirit of christian piety, so far from discouraging, approves the expression, even the costly expression of every disinter ested, generous, affectionate feeling. If the feeling is ta tional in itself, if the expression of the feeling is appropriate and natural, if the indulgence of it is not inordinate, there is nothing in the spirit of christian piety to prompt the mur muring enquiry, To what purpose is this waste 7 Chris tians need not be Stoics. Our Lord would not obliterate the fine and tender sensibilities of our nature, nor would he have us check their free indulgence. He would indeed have every thought and desire brought into captivity to the obedi ence of his gospel; He would indeed have love to God and love to man, in every soul, the deepest and most controlling principles of action. But at the same time he would give its due place, and allow its proper indulgence and natural expression to every tender, or noble, or disinterested feeling. So beautiful, even in its incidental bearings, is' that religion which breathes peace and good will to man, which recon ciles the sinner to his God, and which promises to renovate the aspect of this miserable world.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
