There be many that say, Who will show us any good? LORD, lift you up the light of your countenance on us.
"The old Rabbis say that when the famine came on in Egypt and the storehouses were opened, that Joseph threw the chaff of the grain upon the Nile, that it might float down the river and show those who lived below that there was abundance. So the blessings of this life are nothing more than the husks of God's bounty, compared with spiritual joys and heaven."
