The Best Recommendation
Exodus 24:12-18
And the LORD said to Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give you tables of stone, and a law…

A young man once came to London bearing a letter of introduction to Baron Rothschild with the request that he would give him employment. The great banker received him warmly, but expressed his regret that he had no position for him. As the young man was going, the baron put on his hat and walked along with him, pointing out the various objects of interest. Passing a bank the rich man went in to transact some business. Afterwards the young man applied at that very bank for work, and they asked, "Are you not the young man who was walking with the baron this morning?" "Yes." "Well, you were in good company: and since we need a young man we will consider this a sufficient recommendation." To walk with God is the best recommendation. When men of the world have need of an assistant or helper, they will be likely to consider such a fact as a commendation.

(A. J. Gordon.)
