Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)


Let not then your good be evil spoken of.

Abstain from all appearance of evil.--Providing for honest
things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight
of men.--For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may
put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.

But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or [as] a thief, or
[as] an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. Yet
if [any man suffer] as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but
let him glorify God on this behalf.

Brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only [use] not
liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one
another.--Take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours
become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.--Whoso shall
offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were
better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and
[that] he were drowned in the depth of the sea.--Inasmuch as ye
have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye
have done [it] unto me.

Ro 14:16 1Th 5:22 2Co 8:21 1Pe 2:15 4:15,16 Ga 5:13 1Co 8:9
Mt 18:6 25:40


Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead,
and Christ shall give thee light.

[It is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our
salvation nearer than when we believed.--Therefore let us not
sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober. For they
that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are
drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet,
the hope of salvation.

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the
LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover
the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall
arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope
to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the
revelation of Jesus Christ.--Let your loins be girded about, and
[your] lights burning; and ye yourselves like unto men that
wait for their lord.
