18 He said, Bring them hither to me.
18 Verse 18. Bring them hither to me.] No creature of God should
be considered as good or safe without the blessing of God in it.
If thou have but even a handful of meal and a few herbs, bring
them to Christ by prayer and faith, and he will make them a
sufficiency for thy body, and a sacrament to thy soul. Let
the minister of the Gospel attend also to this-let him bring all
his gifts and graces to his Maker-let him ever know that his word
can be of no use, unless the blessing of Christ be in it.
