The Rich Young Man and Ms Lazarus (the single mother)

"He raises the poor out of the dust,
And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,
That He may seat him with princes-
With the princes of His people,
He grants the barren woman a home,
Like a joyful mother of children."
Psalm 113 v 7-9

Pilgrim's Progress

At present I am reading 'The Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan.
It is a book well worth the reading, with much insight, thought
and treasure, to encourage those of us who seek the truth.

"The trials that those men do meet withal
That are obedient to the heavenly call
Are manifold, and suited to the flesh,
And come, and come, and come again afresh;
That now, or some time else, we by them may
Be taken, overcome, and cast away.
Oh let the pilgrims, let the pilgrims then
Be vigilant, and quit themselves like men!"

Excerpt from the said book above.
