Suggested Scripture Reading: 1Peter 3:14 - 17

1 Samuel 30:24 ... but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike.

 

The greatest sermons that I have ever heard preached were not preached from the pulpits, but from sick beds.  The greatest, deepest truths of God's word have often been revealed not by those who stood up and preached as a result of their peculiar preparation and education, but by those humble souls who have gone through the seminary of affliction and have learned experimentally the deep things of the ways of God.

The Bible tells us very distinctly that there is a special reward and a special crown which the Lord has prepared and laid up for those who suffer patiently.  The principle is suggested by the incident in1 Samuel 30:24.  David had gone out to seek the enemy with four hundred strong, healthy men.  Two hundred however, had remained behind because they were weary and faint, probably because of some physical infirmity.  These David had left behind to care for the stuff of those who went into the heat of the battle.  After the victory had been won the four hundred who had been in the active participation of David's army refused to share with those who remained behind, and said, "We'll give them just a little bit, but we're going to take the spoils"; then it was that David set down the eternal principle in the words of our text!

Yes, those of you who remain by the stuff are not overlooked or forgotten of God; but as I said, there is a special and definite reward laid up for God's patient sufferers. -  M.R.D.

One little hour of watching with the Master,

Eternal years to walk with Him in white;

One little hour to bravely meet disaster,

Eternal years to reign with Him in light;

One little hour for weary toils and trials,

One little hour for calm and peaceful rest;

One little hour for patient and self - denials,

Eternal years for life, where life is blest!

 

"Seldom can the heart be lonely, if it seeks lonelier still,

Self- forgetting, seeking only emptier cups to fill!" - F.R. Havergal.
