AUGUST 22

Wist ye not that I must be about my Fatherís business?óLuke 2:49.

 

 Should we not all have the Masterís spirit, expressed by His words? The Lordís true saints have no business of their own, for they gave their all to the Lord at consecration. Their business they manage as trustees for the Lordónot to be turned over at their death, in prosperous condition, to their children or their friends, possibly to their injury. It is to be used by the trustee as wisely as he knows how before death; for then his trusteeship ends, and he must render his account.
