Grade 2, chapter 6
PRAYER FOR THIS MORNING (TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17). Elizabeth understood well the lesson Jesus taught when he washed his disciples’ feet at the Last Supper: The Christian must be one who serves the humblest needs of others, even if one serves from an exalted position. Yet she served them with such a loving heart that her brief life won for her a special place in the hearts of many. Elizabeth wore herself out with her good works, and in 1231, at the age of only 23, she died. We see this truth in the life of Elizabeth of Hungary.
