"I cannot say OUR if I live only for myself in a spiritually watertight compartment;I cannot say FATHER if I do not endeavor each day to act like His child;I cannot say, WHO ART IN HEAVEN if I am laying up no treasure there;I cannot say HALLOWED BE THY NAME if I am not striving for holiness;I cannot say THY KINGDOM COME if I am not doing all in my power to hasten that wonderful event;I cannot say THY WILL BE DONE if I am disobedient to His Word;I cannot say IN EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN if Ill not serve Him here and now;I cannot say GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD if I am dishonest or if I am seeking things by subterfuge;I cannot say FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS if I harbor a grudge against anyone;I cannot say LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION if I deliberately place myself in its path;I cannot say DELIVER US FROM EVIL if I do not put on the whole armor of God;I cannot say THINE IS THE KINGDOM if I do not give to the King the loyalty due Him as a faithful subject;I cannot attribute to Him the POWER if I fear what men may do;I cannot ascribe to Him the GLORY if Im seeking honor only for myself; andI cannot say FOREVER if the horizon of my life is bounded completely by time.-author unknown
