357. Week of Twenty Third Sunday after Trinity - Saturday
Take notice of the perfect man, and behold the upright, and be like him!
          Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; for the end of that man is peace.   Psalms 37:37
          Child of God, blessed of the Lord; believing Christian, take notice of the perfect man, and behold the upright, and be like him! Do not be like the wicked that borrows and does not pay back, but on the contrary, be merciful and give and lend gladly to those who are in need. Let your mouth speak the wisdom which the Word of God teaches, and let your tongue talk the judgments of God. Let the Law of God be in your heart. Then your steps shall be ordered by the Lord; and He delights in your way. Though you stumble and fall, you shall not be utterly cast down and away; for the Lord holds you by your right hand, and raises you and sustains you. The Lord will not allow your footsteps to slip. The Lord helps you. The Lord shall help you and deliver you. Trust in the Lord! He is your strength in the time of trouble. He shall deliver you from the wicked and save you. The Lord blesses you. And do you know what David says by the Holy Spirit? He says: "I have been young, and now I am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging bread." (v.25) The transgressors shall be destroyed together; the end of the wicked shall be cut off. But you take notice of the perfect man, and behold the upright, and be like to him; for the end of that man is peace. Many a distress may come upon you, if so be the kind will of God, your heavenly Father. But in the end, yes, in the end you shall see and experience and witness, even here on earth, that your end is peace, if you go in the ways of God. And at the very last, mark well! these ways lead into heaven. And "all's well that ends well"; isn't it so? Yes, "mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; for the end of that man is peace."
          PRAYER: - Lord God, dear Heavenly Father, who has made me Your dear child, and has so profusely showered blessings upon me, I pray You to help me to be perfect and upright as becomes a child of Yours, and as Your Holy Spirit moves me to be. Hold me by my hand and do not let my footsteps slip. Raise me when I fall. And let my end be peace according to your Word. And finally give me eternal life through Jesus Christ. Amen
