Large Returns

Matt. 13, 8

Ps. 126, 6


To serve the Lord Christ is the highest privilege–to help him establish righteousness in human lives.  He has a place for us, to undertake for him.


All service has its reward.

(a)  At least the consciousness of duty performed.  This if nothing more; usually there is more.

(b)  Some seed fall by the wayside, etc., but “some into good ground.”  This is the common lot of his servants–“sow in tears, but reap in joy.”  Not every Sunday School pupil profits most, but some do.

Our giving to good causes yields fruit.  Enormous returns from the work of missions.  Godly parents wield a mighty influence.  1 Godly father; 10 children Christians; 42 grandchildren, 41 Christian, 1 a preacher.  That is at least 51-fold in only 2 generations.


The results abide through the ages, right forces set a going operate on and on.  “Some 30; some 60; some 100-fold.”  No such returns assured anywhere else.

With this vision and assurance who need be discouraged?

“The day of small things” may ultimately result in large returns.

“Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing bringing his sheaves with him.”–Ps. 126, 6
