Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

APRIL 16

 

They shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I

 make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him—Mal. 3:17.

 

 Had the Lord sent us forth to seek His elect, we might have gathered in some whom He rejects as unworthy, because we are unable to read the heart. This thought should make us very humble, gentle and meek toward all, and very trustful of the Lord, and very much inclined to look for His leading in respect to our labors as His servants, just as Samuel looked to the Lord in connection with the anointing of David.
