Let your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
I have heard one say, as he bent over a friend who was groaning under the surgeon's knife, It will soon be over! and so Jesus, with tender fellow feeling for their infirmities, consoles His suffering people. Amid your trials, think of that — they will soon be over; sooner, perhaps, than you fancy. Your salvation, not only nearer than when you believed, may be nearer than you suppose; even now the cry may be sounding in heaven — Room for another saint! a crown for another head! and the next turn of the road may bring you in front of the gates of glory.
(T. Guthrie, D. D.)
