Blessed is the man whom you chasten, O LORD, and teach him out of your law;…
At a meeting I attended lately for the Army Scripture Readers Society (writes a correspondent) I was greatly struck by a speech made by one of the soldiers present. In this speech he twice remarked, "It was my privilege to be wounded," when speaking of the South African War. How beautiful and how rare. If we could all only have faith like this simple untaught soldier, and receive all trials and sorrows of our everyday life as privileges because sent from our Heavenly Father to lead us to Him! "So by our woes to be Nearer, my God, to Thee; Nearer to Thee."
