Rights and privileges

ONE of the great tragedies of … every age is that men and women are so preoccupied with their real or imagined rights and privileges that the great revelations of God which have power to transform their whole lives are unheeded. It is an evil which can have its victims in the Household. At times when the rights and wrongs of an issue are the subject of heated discussion it is always wise to pause and listen to the voice of Christ. He can restore the true perspective.
