Days of Heaven Upon Earth

Devotional For

October 7



      "He opened not His mouth" (Isa. liii. 7).
      
      How much grace it requires to bear a misunderstanding rightly, and to receive an unkind judgment in holy sweetness! Nothing tests a Christian character more than to have some evil thing said about him. This is the file that soon proves whether we are electro-plate or solid gold. If we could only know the blessings that lie hidden in our lives, we would say, like David, when Shimei cursed him, "Let him curse; it may be the Lord will requite me good for his cursing this day."
      
      Some people get easily turned aside from the grandeur of their life-work by pursuing their own grievances and enemies, until their life gets turned into one little petty whirl of warfare. It is like a nest of hornets. You may disperse the hornets, but you will probably get terribly stung, and get nothing for your pains, for even their honey is not worth a search.
      
      God give us more of His Spirit, who, when reviled, reviled not again; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously.
      
      Consider Him that endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself.
