Will you not from this time cry to me, My father, you are the guide of my youth?
I. THE ASSUMPTION. That the person is in a state of unregeneracy. Multitudes are thus. Refusing to listen to God. In the neglect of the claims of God there is an amount of daring of which we can hardly form a conception, especially in the case of the child of many prayers.
II. THE IMITATION. Why should you from this time say, "Thou art the Guide of my youth?"
1. The claims of Him who asks it.
2. The dangers of delay.
3. The final consequences of refusal.
(D. E. Ford.)
