In the fields of worldly labour …

“In the fields of worldly labour, we may spend our strength for nought, and in vain. A rival may bear off from us a prize, which we have long been chasing, and at the very moment we are seizing it. The cup of enjoyment, filled with eager hope, is often dashed to the ground from the very lip that touches it. But their heart shall live that seek God. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless return again wtih rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled. Is there unfaithfulness with God? Did he ever say to the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me, in vain?”

– William Jay
