Knowing the Code

Four men were standing in a telegraph office while a message was being received. Three of them heard merely a succession of taps. The other surprised his companions by repeating the message aloud. He knew the code, and to him every tap or group of taps meant a letter. Pharaoh's kine and ears of corn were fantastic and meaningless pictures to all but the man to whom God gave the key. It is the same today. We cannot puzzle out the problem of life by ourselves; without God all is dark, mysterious, incomprehensible. But our Father holds the key, and He will give all needful light to those who trust in Him.—Sunday School Times.


Shadows of the Almighty

"There are ferns in the garden of the soul as well as flowers. The flowers grow best in the sunshine; the ferns grow best in the shade.

"There is the fern of Patience, and the fern of Longsuffering, and the fern of Meekness. And the great Gardener of the soul delights in ferns, and purposes to save them from destruction by the garish day.

"And so He takes us into the shade—the shade of disappointment, or the shade of sorrow, or the shade of sickness and pain. But it is a very blessed shadow, for it is the `Shadow of the Almighty.' And here the ferns flourish and the cloudy day makes the garden beautiful."J. H. Jowett.
