Oh! A land which the Lord thy God careth for. That would be a vain attempt; and if it were practicable, it would be unwise in you to make it. It is a blessed but a perilous position which God's people are called to occupy. But here the scoffer may interject, "Why, if this be 'a land which the Lord careth for,' IS IT SUFFERED TO BE DARKENED HERE AND THERE BY THE OVERHANGING PESTILENCE, or drained of its best blood to keep down a despot's pride?"

The man of business is accustomed at this season to review the transactions of the preceding year, that he may ascertain the amount of his gains and losses. No; we must be taught, as Israel was taught, that fruitfulness was not so much the happy product of the soil, still less the natural requital of man's industry and skill, but an immediate effect of the Divine blessing — a consequence of the eyes of the Lord never being off the land, but ever seeking and ever caring for it to do it good.II.

The farmer no longer rejoices in his ignorance; and agricultural chemistry has taken rank among the established studies of the day. The word is very suggestive to us. It would be a deep enigma in Providence, and contrary to all that has been hitherto known among men, if the desolating scenes which are now taking place in the East should be without some great moral — should pass away, like the dark shapes upon a storm cloud, and leave no trace behind. Ask yon grey beard with all the experience of seventy years, whether at least he has not attained to an independence of grace, and he will say to you that as the infirmity of the body presses upon him it is his joy that his inner man is renewed day by day, but take away God, who is the spring of that renewal, and old age would be utter wretchedness. LOOK FORWARD TO THE YEAR WHICH HAS COMMENCED. But your ignorance of futurity should urge you to seek preparedness for the events that will befall you, whatever they may be. LOOK BACK ON THE YEAR WHICH HAS EXPIRED. The Christian's temporal condition is different to that of the worldling, for the worldling looks to secondary causes; the Christian looks to heaven; he gets his mercies thence.

But yonder, towering skyward, were the hills, and the brigands were there, and over them, who could tell what tribes there were? Who else can give thee patience or who so tenderly comfort as the God of all consolation, the God of all patience? LOOK BACK ON THE YEAR WHICH HAS EXPIRED. No; we must be taught, as Israel was taught, that fruitfulness was not so much the happy product of the soil, still less the natural requital of man's industry and skill, but an immediate effect of the Divine blessing — a consequence of the eyes of the Lord never being off the land, but ever seeking and ever caring for it to do it good.II. Perhaps the sweetest word of the text is that next one — the eyes of Jehovah "thy God." Fetch all thy supplies from Him. (Homiletic Monthly.

That as the eyes of the Lord our God are upon us, in this extent and production, so our eyes may be upon Him likewise in the same extent. Ah, poor puny thing, how can the lamb do without the shepherd to carry it in his arms? Should we call that a cared for land over which the ploughshare had never passed, neither iron had entered to break up the fallow ground?

Phl 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
