DAILY READINGS: Ruth 2:1-23; Isaiah 42:1-25; 2 Corinthians 2:1-17

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Joshua 1:8 

Although the world would disagree, this verse holds the formula for prosperity and success. It is a life founded on the Word of God. Meditation on it, obedience to it, and the speaking forth of it, will result in a prosperity of soul that this world could never offer. —E.V.

If I gained the world, but had no Saviour,
Would my gain be worth the life-long strife?
Are all earthly pleasures worth comparing,
For a moment with a Christ filled life? —Anna Olander
