Advice for those who would do well.

“J C Ryle offers excellent advice: ‘Those who try to do good must look forward to the Day of Judgement with patience. They must be content in this present world to be misunderstood, misrepresented, vilified, slandered and abused. They must not cease to work because their motives are mistaken and their characters are fiercely assailed. They must remember that all will be set right at the last day. The secrets of all hearts will then be revealed. The purity of their intentions, the wisdom of their labours and the rightfulness of their cause shall at length be manifest to all the world.’ “

John Blanchard, The Beatitudes for Today (Leominster, UK: Day One Publications, 1996), 235-36.
