Daily Strength - Service

“If two angels were to receive at the same moment a commission from God, 

one to go down and rule earth’s grandest empire, 

the other to go and sweep the streets of its meanest village,

it would be a matter of entire indifference to each which service fell to his lot, 

the post of ruler or the post of scavenger; 

for the joy of the angels lies only in obedience to God’s will, 

and with equal joy they would lift a Lazarus in his rags to Abraham’s bosom, 

or be a chariot of fire to carry an Elijah home.”
