Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)


Take this child away, and nurse it for me,
and I will give [thee] thy wages.

Go ye . . . into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will
give you.--Whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in
my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he
shall not lose his reward.--The liberal soul shall be made fat:
and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.--God [is]
not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, . . . in
that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

Every man shall receive his own reward according to his own

Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed [thee]? or
thirsty, and gave [thee] drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and
took [thee] in? or naked, and clothed [thee]? . . . Inasmuch as
ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye
have done [it] unto me.--Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit
the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

Ex 2:9 Mt 20:4 Mr 9:41 Pr 11:25 Heb 6:10 1Co 3:8
Mt 25:37,38,40,34


Thou compassest my path and my lying down.

Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD
is in this place; and I knew [it] not. And he was afraid, and
said, How dreadful [is] this place! this [is] none other but
the house of God, and this [is] the gate of heaven.

The eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole
earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of [them] whose heart
[is] perfect toward him.

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD,
only makest me dwell in safety.

Because thou hast made the LORD, [which is] my refuge, [even]
the most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee,
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall
give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
--When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou
shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.--So he giveth his
beloved sleep.
