sacrifice of self for the good of others. As well in the world of nature as in spiritual things it is true that as you give just so shall you receive. Once the forces of nature were little utilized, but when man gave himself to them, that is to their study, they returned his pains a hundred fold. So to the husbandman the earth gives just in proportion as he gives himself to its cultivation. From this we must learn that we cannot gain anything without giving ourselves to it. We cannot become fine scholars or musicians without devoting ourselves to our work. In religion it is especially true that as you give so you receive. When a man thinks little of religion and never troubles himself to see what there is in it, of course he can get nothing out of it. To gain its help and strength we must first give ourselves to it.
