Thought for the Day

From a passage in William Wilberforce's diary for 1812:

Miss E. now going on admirably. Her health and spirits improved, and she very active amongst the cottagers, doing them good. A most useful lesson taught by this; that the best course when any one is low-spirited and distressed with anxieties, is to set them to action in doing good to others. Trust thou in the Lord, and be doing good.

Quoted in Wilberforce & Wilberforce, The Life of William Wilberforce, vol. IV, p. 53
