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

Morning:

The fruit of the Spirit is . . . meekness.

The meek . . . shall increase [their] joy in the LORD, and
the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.--
Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall
not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall
humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the
kingdom of heaven.--[The ornament] of a meek and quiet spirit,
. . . is in the sight of God of great price.--Charity vaunteth
not itself, is not puffed up.

Follow after . . . meekness.--Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart.--He was
oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he
is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her
shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.--Christ also
suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow
his steps: who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; . . . but committed
[himself] to him that judgeth righteously.

Evening:

If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report.--All
that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.--
--The offence of the cross ceased.

If I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye];
. . . 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.

Unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to
believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.--If one died
for all, then were all dead: And [that] he died for all, that
they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but
unto him which died for them, and rose again.--If we suffer, we
shall also reign with [him].
