2 Timothy 3:1
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
The worse the times we live in are, the greater will our honour be, if we be faithful. It was Lot's commendation that he was good in Sodom, and Job in an heathenish Uz. The more sin abounds, the more our grace should abound; and the more sin appears in the world, the more should we appear against it. The Lord hath done more for us of this last age of the world than He ever did for our forefathers, and therefore He expects more from us than He did from them; where He bestows much He looks for much again; where we bestow double cost, we look for a double crop. It is a shame for us if we do not do our work better by sunlight, than others that have had but twilight.
(T. Hall, B. D.)
