1 Samuel 12:2
And now, behold, the king walks before you: and I am old and gray headed; and, behold, my sons are with you…
The only life that bears being looked back upon is a life of Christian devotion and effort. It shows fairer when seen in the strange cross lights that come when we stand on the boundary of two worlds — with "the white radiance of eternity" beginning to master the vulgar oil lamps of earth — than when seen by these alone.
(A. Maclaren, D. D.)
