AUGUST 17 EVENING

As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.PSA. 103:15,16.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.—What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Surely the people is grass. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.—The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.—Use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.—Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Psa. 90:12. -Mark 8:36.Isa. 40:7,8. -I John 2:17.II Cor. 6:2. -I Cor. 7:31. -Heb. 10:24,25.
