truth sweetened by grace; and both of these find their full expression in the Person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ.—Frank Colquhoun. 24. What Do We Hunger For? “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure” (1 John 3:3). .. It. is always our peril w h e n we hunger for place more than character; for position more than for disposition; for a temporal scepter more than for a majestic self-control. We want to be great and prominent; the Lord wants us to be pure and good.—J. H. Jowett. 25. Contrary Winds “The Lord is nigh unto them that call upon him” (Psa. 145:18). There are those who toil long and faithfully with seemingly no greater result than that obtained by His dis­ ciples that night in the attempt to Cross the Sea of Galilee. But remem­ ber they were rowing in obedience to His command, and at the crucial mo­ ment He met them. . . . Are the winds contrary? Are you pulling against seas that will not yield? He is near-by in the gloom and will reveal Himself to you at His appointed time. “And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased.”—Selected. 26. Lamps “As a lamp that burneth (Isa. 62:1). Lamps do not talk, but they shine. A lighthouse sounds no drum; it beats no gong—and yet far over the waters its friendly spark is seen by the mari­ ner. So let your actions shine out your religion. Let the main sermon of your life be illustrated by all your conduct. —Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

27. When God Laughs “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh” (Psa. 2:4). i have always been intrigued with the allusions in S c r i p t u r e which speak of the laughing God. There is something profoundly wonderful about them, for they are peculiarly asso­ ciated with the satisfaction of victory over evil. . . . And the children of God are invitéd to share in this laughter. “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (Psa. 126:1, 2). —A London Journalist. 28. Covered Eyes * “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law” (Psa. 119:18). Dr. Alexander gives the following literal rendering of this verse: “Un­ cover mine eyes and I will look—won­ ders out of thy law!” The last clause is said to be a kind of exclamation after the covering had been removed from his eyes. There are those who complain that they can get nothing from the Bible. Surely it is for no lack of treasures in the Book. . . . God stands ready to remove the dimness of our spiritual vision when by earnest prayer we ask Him to give us illumi­ nation by His Spirit.—Keith L. Brooks. But God “What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter” (John 13:7). I know not, but God knows; Oh, blessed rest from fear! All my unfolding days To Him are plain and clear. Each anxious, puzzled “Why?” From doubt or dread that grows, Finds answer in this thought: I know not, but He knows. —Annie Johnson Flint. Bridal Array “Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the wash­ ing o f . water by the Word” (Eph. 5:25, 26). How far is the desire of His heart satisfied in us? Does He see earnest care on our part to weave in every thought and deed the bridal array that shall be to His glory as well as our joy? Only He can “sanctify and cleanse us through the washing of water by the Word,” but we have to listen to that Word and to translate it into practical action every day of our lives, by His grace. —Mrs. Howard Taylqr. 29. 30.
