DECEMBER 18

 

 The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto meóHeb. 13:6.

 

 To have the proper course in life, to be able to meet the trials and difficulties of life as they come to us, and to meet them in the proper spirit which the Lord directs in the spirit of rejoicing in tribulation, and counting such experiences all joy it is necessary that all fear of man, which brings a snare, shall be removed. And it is our Lordís direction that we shall fear Jehovah, and not fear our mortal fellows. The righteous are bold as a lion, as well as gentle as a dove, and meek as a lamb. This peculiar combination should be found in every Christian, and we doubt if it will be found elsewhere.
