There is no .time so sacred as fho twi light hour. The sun sinks , calmly to rest as a weary child on fhil'bosom~eF its mother; thp littlq. birds cease thoir sweet songs Of joy, and all nature seeks repose. The merchant, weary of the duties of his counting-room, tnrns fHth delight to his home, where, for a brief periotl.’he can uninterruptedly enjoy the society of his family. Thp thoughts of the mother turn, anxiously to her ab sent son, w ho has left the home of his childhood, and is now wandering in the land of strangers. We pause in thia holy hour to pluck sweet flowers of the past from memory's garden; in fancy vje mingle in the society of those with whom wq played in the merry days of childhood; but wjio have since passed to the land beyond the stars— demnation, to an heirship with the Son of the Most H>gh. His promise of exaltation is not in temporal, bht iu spiritnal things, and will be fully ea- joyod not only in tho ohuroh militant, bnt in the church triumphant. Tlie rich brother is commanded to rejoice in that he is made low, brought down from the topling height of pride, led to see the folly of tmsting in “uncertain rich, es,” and made a partaker in the shame and sufferings of Christ, that in due time he may be exalted to reign with with him. Thus both are brought by faith in one gracious Lord $0 one pre cious hope, which is as an anchor to the sonl, both sure and steadfast, en tering within the veil. The jealousies are alike diffienlt io overcome, alike deatrnctive of apiritnal life, and if not conquered, will fetter the soul and drag it down the step« of endleee woe.
