I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. — 1 Cor 9:22

Some people have a happy faculty of always calling out the best that is in others.

A shy person is made to feel at home in their presence, and at once loses his shyness. A bashful child is drawn out of his self–consciousness the moment he comes into their presence. The secret of this enviable power lies in sincere, unselfish interest. It is the winning–ness of love that woos out the best. Here is a prayer for all:

“May every soul that touches mine
Be it the slightest contact get there–from some good,
Some little grace: one kindly thought,
One aspiration yet unfelt, one bit of courage
For the darkening sky, one gleam of faith
To brave the thickening ills of life,
One glimpse of brightening skies, beyond the gathering mists,
To make this life worth while,
And heaven a surer heritage.”
