are done when no eye is watching,— thethings of the quiet days. The ten thousandlittle acts and words and manifestations of disposition, which make up the substance of living, much more fairly index the real char-acter than do the one or two things whichpeople talk about.After all, the greatness is not in the con-spicuousness of that which is done, but in itsMINISTRIES THAT BLESS. *Jlspirit, its moral quality. " With God there isneither little nor great ; there is only straightor crooked." That which we do really forGod is great, though it seem but a trifle inhuman eyes. That which we do only for menis small, though it bulk large as a mountain.We never know what will be the end of the smallest good we do in this world. Itmay start a series of blessings which shallextend, with increasing benefit, through cen-turies. There are single sentences in theBible which have been helping, comforting,strengthening, guiding, cheering, and inspiringmen and women for thousands of years andin all lands. There have, been single acts of simple kindness, done even without the thoughtthat they would be helpful, which have provedthe beginning of endless chains of blessing.Says Faber, " When men do anything forGod,— the very least thing,— they never knowwhere it will end, nor what amount of work itwill do for him. Love's secret, therefore, isto be always doing things for God, and not tomind because they are very little ones."
