“God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have showed toward His name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.” All that we do for the Lord’s honor or glory, no matter how little or insignificant it may seem to men, will be rewarded by Him. And while we know that the greatest reward will be at the judgment seat of Christ, when He comes for us, yet even now our Lord has promised that “if any man serve Me, him will My Father honor.” So “let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith,” not forgetting the Lord’s words that “My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” So “let not your hands be slack,” for “he that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” “He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength.” “Ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.”
The work seems hard and burdensome;
We have no strength for the way,
But we know that all done for Him
Awaits His smile in that day.

“O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” “He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.” God has graciously told us that “if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering: for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” “Give therefore Thy servant an understanding heart … that I may discern between good and bad.” And the Lord has promised to do this for His own, for “if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” For “there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.” “What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose.”
Our wisdom is not sufficient
To trust in our time of need;
The Lord’s perfect understanding
Can show us wisdom indeed.

It is the natural inclination, our hearts being warped by sin as they are, to want to get even with those who mistreat or ignore us. But God’s Word tells us to “say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me; I will render to the man according to his work.” Instead, God tells us who know Him to “see that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men,” and to “bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you,” “not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.” “For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people.” So let us not take our case out of His hands, “because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example. … Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously.” “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”
We cannot fight our own battles;
We have not wisdom or strength,
But putting all in His dear hands
Will make all things right at length.

When Paul wrote the above statement, he had just enumerated the things in which he had once trusted and gloried. These included his ancestry, his religion, his education, his zeal and his imagined righteousness. But when, some thirty years before he made the above statement, he had met the Lord Jesus Christ and had come to know Him, all these things were “counted loss for Christ.” There have been and are today many who can give similar testimony: All changed when we met Him. All things in which we trusted and gloried were “counted loss for Christ.” But has this attitude continued in our lives? Have we continued through the days and years and varied circumstances of life to count all “loss for Christ”? It had continued so with Paul, and he says further that “yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in Him.” Our love for the Lord ought to deepen as the days go by. May He not have to say to us that “I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love,” and may we not have to pray, “Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation.”
“All things but loss” for Thee, dear Lord,
Whether wealth, or fame, or name;
“I have heard Him, and observed Him,”
Who is evermore the same.

“Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” How easy it is for the Christian to become engrossed with material things, forgetting that “we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out,” for “thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall these things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate.”
The riches of the world perish;
That given to God remains,
Waiting for us up in heaven,
The land of eternal gains.

Pitiful and to be pitied is that person who thinks that he or she is always right, and that they must have the last word in every argument or situation. Sad to say, such people are to be found among God’s redeemed children. Such an attitude is in plain violation of God’s Word, which says “to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” The Word also tells us to “let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” There is never a valid reason for a child of God to be “wise in his own conceit.” Let us never imagine that we have perfect knowledge about anything, nor will we until we see the Lord. “Now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” Now, in this present life, “if any man think that he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.” So, “if thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.”
Our knowledge is limited;
So much we do not know;
Why should we think we are wise,
Above what others know?

How often, when there has been a potentially explosive situation in the home, between friends, or in the church, it has been subdued by a tender, “soft answer,” and how often have painful, “grievous words,” better left unspoken, been used to “stir up anger,” to the hurt of all concerned. “A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.” “There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health,” and “by long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.” Such a “soft tongue,” or if need be, a silent tongue, is a testimony to our Lord, “who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously.” Let us not be of those “who have said, With our tongues will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?” Let us always remember that, given room, “the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. … And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity.” How it behooves the Christian to “let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye might know how ye ought to answer every man.”
A soft and tender answer
Can calm the wrath of man,
But grievous words, and painful
Can anger start and fan.

If we would have freedom in our lives from sin’s dominion, it is necessary that we “continue in [the] Word.” Thus “ye shall know the truth,” and “Thy Word is truth.” To “continue” is to “abide,” to “remain,” to “stay,” to “dwell.” To “continue in My Word” is to “let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom,” for “the entrance of Thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” So “continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of … the holy Scriptures.” For “the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. … More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is Thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” Christian reader, how much does the Word of God mean to you? We manifest our love for the Lord by our love for His Word. Can we truthfully say to Him that “Thy testimonies also are my delight, and my counselors”?
“Thy Word is a lamp unto” me,
To “lead me in Thy truth,”
“Rejoicing the heart” day by day,
And that I love Him is proof.
John 8:31‑32 ~ John 17:17 ~ Colossians 3:16 ~ Psalm 119:130 ~ 2 Timothy 3:14‑15 ~ Psalm 19:8 ~ Psalm 19:10‑11 ~ Psalm 119:24

Anyone, be he saved or unsaved, who lifts his hand against one of God’s redeemed children, is inviting God to deal with him, “for he that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of His eye.” The Lord said of Israel that “He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness … He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye,” and His Word concerning all His people is, “Touch not Mine anointed.” We read how Saul of Tarsus, “yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord … as he journeyed … there shined round about him a light from heaven: and … a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me? And he said, Who art Thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.” In persecuting the Lord’s people, Paul had persecuted the Lord Himself. “We have not a High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” “Who can stretch forth his hand against the Lord’s anointed, and be guiltless?” We can confidently pray, “Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me under the shadow of Thy wings.”
God guards His own from day to day,
For they are dear to His heart;
“Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,”
He saith to those who would hurt.

“Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow.” “Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” But, “the Lord, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed,” for “as thy days, so shall thy strength be.” He says to His own, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness,” “for I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.” “Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler. … He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” So “I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of Thy righteousness, even of Thine only,” “redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
The days lie out before me,
And I know not what they hold,
But I know Him who promised,
Never to forsake my soul.
