God is the only Master Who always gives His servants the wages they work for. Serve Him in your business, and every hour you spend in your counting-house or in your works—whether you make money or lose it—will increase your treasure in Heaven. Serve God in your profession and whether you are successful or not in your professional life, every hour of labor will discipline you for the higher activities on the other side of death.—H. W. Dale
Queen Elizabeth in the sixteenth century called on a prominent merchant and proposed to entrust to him some important business on the continent. When he pleaded that if he went abroad on the Queen's business his own business at home would suffer, Elizabeth replied, 'You attend to my business and I shall see that yours suffers no loss.'
(John 12. 26; Acts 27. 23; Col. 3. 24)
