what the result ADS By Bing: Michael Kors Outlet Online Michael Kors Bags Outlet Michael Kors Outlet would be, were it perfectly and perpetually obeyed. Suppose every man on earth were swayed supremely by the law of the Lord, and were constantly exercising to God, and to his neighbour, the love that it requires. What would be the effect on individual and social happiness? No one would feel the uneasiness of an inordinate desire, the plague of a malignant passion or emotion, the violent and painful impulse of ungoverned appetites, and vicious propensities; regret, remorse, selfcondemnation and all the woes of a guilty conscience would be unknown; avarice, ambition, jealousies, strifes, emulations, rivalry, envy, pride, intrigue, dishonesty, falsehood, talebearing, backbiting, whisperings and evil surmisings, would cease to torment the individual or afflict society. Family feuds, neighbourhood quarrels, intestine and national wars would cease to the ends of the etfrtli. Profaneness, intemperance, licentiousness, theft, robbery and murder, would no longer inflict their giant miseries on man. There would be no harrowing forebodings of evil to the individual or to society, no dejection, gloom and despondency, to drive men to madness and suicide. What a mighty aggregation of evils, THE PERFECTION OF of positive miseries, would thus be removed by obedience to the divine law. Then think of the positive happiness that would thus be promoted. Each mind under the absolute sway of a law, the wisest and best adapted to its moral nature, that the infinite God could frame. Each one filled with the peace of God; "for great peace have they that love his law." All the powers of the soul balanced, harmonized and brought under the control of supreme love to God; made to act rightly, to have the approbation of conscience, and a sense of the smiles of Heaven, the mind, with all its powers and susceptibilities, occupied and absorbed in love, adoration, praise, gratitude and devotion to God? These exercises, in their very nature, are adapted to promote the greatest happiness of rational beings. Then think of the incessant exercise of the benevolent affections to his fellow men, the love that like an angel of mercy is ever active in relieving the wants, and soothing the woes of the poor and afflicted, the charity that "thinketh no evil," but " suffereth long, and is kind," the benevolence that is ever forming and executing plans for the social, intellectual and spiritual improvement and happiness of the race, the affection that pours its ardent prayers at the footstool
