Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
If the Christian's joy be interrupted it ought only to be as the sun's brightness may be dimmed by a passing cloud, which quickly leaves the firmament as radiant as before.
(H. Melvill, B. D.)Napoleon when sent to Elba, adopted, in proud defiance of his fate, the motto, "Ubicunque felix." It was not true in his case; but the Christian may be truly "happy everywhere" and always.
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
