Additional Consolation

For those laboring in the vineyard of the Lord, the Providence of God provides, more usually than not, a wonderful additional consolation. The seed that they sow in the earth may well be raked by malicious attacks and covered with the dung of abuse, but it will spring up the more mightily and abundantly than any which saw nothing but the sweet smelling breezes of popular applause.
