Text of the Day






Ye endured a great fight of afflictions, partly whilst ye were

 made a gazing-stock, both by reproaches and afflictions, and partly whilst ye became the companions of them that were so used—Heb. 10:32,33.


The strongest of the brethren need the help, the encouragement, the assistance of others. The Lord has so arranged it that we may not feel ourselves entirely self-sufficient, and that even our proper leaning upon the Lord shall seem to require also the co-operation, encouragement, sympathy and love of the fellow-laborers in the vineyard. Who that has borne any measure of the labor and heat of the day in the gospel service cannot sympathize with this thought? Here, then, is a way in which many of the Lord’s dear people, who have not themselves the largest amount of talent or opportunity for service, may be co­laborers and assistants in the gospel work.
