2 Chronicles 5:1-6:11; Ezekiel 29:1-30:19; John 11:1-27

Where hast thou gleaned to day? Ruth 2:19

Naomi asked her daughter-in-law Ruth a searching question that could well be directed to the saints in our day. Could it be possible that we would allow the things of the world to encroach upon those sacred moments when we glean daily from the Word of God? Paul, in writing to young Timothy, was careful to emphasise the importance of the Word of God in his life. He exhorts him to read it, to meditate upon it, to give himself entirely to it and to preach it. May we carefully protect these sacred moments from anything that would displace them. —W. H. Burnett

We taste of Thee Thou living bread,
And long to feast upon Thee still,
We drink of Thee the fountainhead,
And thirst our souls from Thee to fill. —Bernard Palmer
