AUGUST 9 EVENING

Broken cisterns, that can hold no water.JER. 2:13.

Eve . . . bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.

Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven. The Lord scattered them.—Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; it was well watered every where, even as the garden of the Lord. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.

I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.—I made me great works; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards: I gathered me also silver and gold. Then I looked on all, and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit.

If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.—He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
