Lead Us Not from the Path of Duty

S. M. Potter was a Christian soldier in the Sixteenth Philadelphia Cavalry. He prayed daily for his family. To his wife he wrote:

My dear wife:

There are two little boys here about the size of Josey, white headed, they sing, “Rally round the flag boys.” & it sounds for all the world like our little fellows at home sing, so you see Josey Lucy & Bell are brought & kept in mind all the time. I think I can hear them singing all the time. What are you doing this Sabbath evening? … I would like so well to hear the children singing at worship, no music would sound sweeter … Knowing that you & your little ones will join in a psalm in the praise of God I will suppose you to sing the 23rd and at bedtime I will join you. Although we will not hear one another yet he to whose praise we will sing will hear us all & may we not hope unite our songs in Heaven uniting our prayers too. I feel confident that yours & the children are offered to God. May we not hope for his blessing on us all, that we may not be led from the path of Duty, that his blessings may be on our labors, on our lives, on our children, on us in all our relations in life, that we may be good soldiers, good citizens, good Christians & then we will be happy …

S. M. Potter

A famous preacher once said, “Happiness is stumbled upon along the pathway of duty.” S. M. Potter also believed that the path of Christian duty was the way of blessing from God.

Are you looking for joy? Stick to the pathway of duty; blessing and joy will find you.

Paul looked straight at the Sanhedrin and said, “My brothers, I have fulfilled my duty to God in all good conscience to this day.”

Acts 23:1
