Our One Thing Is To Master This Lesson

I love this excerpt from Stan’s post last week! http://stanhustad.com/a-blessed-new-year/

“Life with all its experiences is just our chance of learning love. The lesson is set for us – “Thou shalt love”; “As I have loved you, that you also love one another.”  Our one thing is to master this lesson. We are not in the world to get rich, to gain power, to become learned in the arts and sciences, to build up a great business or to do large things in any line.  We are not here to get along in our daily work, in our shops, or schools, or homes, or on our farms. We are not here to comfort sorrow, to visit the sick, and perform deeds of charity.  All of these or any of these, may be among our duties, and they may fill our hands; but in all our occupations the real business of life, that which we are always to strive to do, the work which must go in all our experiences, if we grasp life’s true meaning at all, is to learn to love, and to grow loving in disposition and character.”
