Do Nothing to Grieve the Holy Spirit
Remember that the Spirit is always in you. Start your day by saying, “I am a child of God, and therefore the Holy Spirit of God dwells within me. Whatever I may be, whatever I may have to do, whatever may happen to me, He will be with me; my very thought, word and deed will be in His sight and in His presence.” Oh, how I thank God for the privilege! how careful I should be in nothing to grieve Him or to disappoint Him! Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed until the day of redemption. Remember Him, remember why He is doing in you, think of the glory for which He is preparing you, and the things that grieve Him will become unthinkable.
