The Laws of Christ for Common Life. Chapter 15. Sowing and Reaping

However bitter may be our disappointments, we are in the presence of a Divine sorrow which silences our complaints. He who laid aside His eternal glory and died on the cross at the impulse of His love for mankind and His love of righteousness, has not forsaken the world which He died to save. Our work is His rather than ours; our successes are His, and His are our defeats. “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man,” and if no harvest comes, or seems to come, we should think of His grief rather than of our own.
