Ir. Our Every Day Duties' LIKE THEIR BRITISH F0R3EAP.S, Dear Editor—Will you please give me space in your paper for a short sketch on "Our every day duties." We meet with trials and temptations most every day we live, still we should strive to do our duty. One of our every day duties is to be kind to all persons, it matters not how cruel and harsh they may use us, we must return good for evil, and not evil for evil. This is one of our greatest crosses we have to bear. How very hard it is for us to speak * kindly of our enemies, when we know they are doing all they can to crush us face to face with the earth and to hold us there speak- ing all manner of evil of us. De- ceiving our friends and making them think we are something we are not. Still if we strive each day to do our duty to our God and our fellow man we will out pull all their fame. Then let's speak kind of each other and all of our enemies (or not speak at all.) Christ said, "Love thy enemy as thyself " and surely we don't...
