We must ignore our pains and preference, our own longing for sympathy and peace, our times of weakness, anguish, desolation, and fatigue; we must go on giving, up to the limit and beyond. Christ himself groaned in spirit at the effort demanded of him. He knew what virtue had gone out; he gave a costly, not an easy restoration to the fallen and weak. He bore our burdens and carried our sorrows.
