“In my prosperity I said I shall never be moved.”
“Moab settled on his lees, he hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel.” Give a man riches; let his ships bring home repeatedly rich freights; let the winds and waves appear to be his servants to bear his vessels across the bosom of the mighty deep; let his lands yield plentifully: let the weather be favourable to his crops; let continual success be with him; let him stand among men as a victorious merchant; let him enjoy continuous health; allow him with braced nerve and brilliant eye to march through the world, and live joyfully; give him the happy spirit; let him have the song continually on his lips; let his eye be ever sparkling with joy-and the natural result of such an easy state to any man, let him be the best Christian who ever lived, will be presumption; even David said, “I shall never be moved;” and we are not better than David, nor half so good. Brother, beware of the smooth places of the way; if you are treading them, or if the way be rough, thank God for it. If God should always rock us in the cradle of wealth; if we were always dandled on the knees of fortune; if we had not some tarnish on the alabaster pillar; if there were not a few clouds in the sky; if we had not some bitter drops in the wine of this life, we should become drunk with pleasure, we should dream “we stand;” and stand we should, but it would be upon a pinnacle; like the man asleep upon the mast, each moment we should be in danger. We bless God, then, for our afflictions; we thank him for our changes; we praise his name for losses of property; for we feel that had he not chastened us thus, we might have become too secure. Continued worldly prosperity is a fiery trial.
“Afflictions, though they seem severe,
In mercy oft are sent.”
