Even then it may be supposed that it is very difficult to attain ; but it is not so, says the Lord. It is very easy to acquire, like the power of discriminating gems. Now, of the other acts, those which involve little trouble and are easily accomplished are seen to be productive of small results, and difficult acts are found to be productive of great results.
