And when any will offer a meat offering to the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil on it…
-An aged minister advised the people of a neighbourhood in Wales, where he laboured for the Master, to hold "cottage prayer-meetings," taking the houses in regular order up the mountain-side. One day a poor woman went to a store and asked for two penny candles. The storekeeper said to her, "Why, Nancy, what do you want with penny candles? Is not the rushlight good enough for you?" Her answer was, "Oh yes, rushlight is good enough for me, but the prayer-meeting will soon be coming to my house, and I want to give the Lord Jesus Christ a good welcome." Is there not a lesson here for each Christian? Are we always ready to "give the Lord Jesus a good welcome"? Or do we keep the candles for self, and give the rushlight to Him?
