Take this child away and nurse him for me,
and I will give you your wages.

Go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you. § Whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward. § The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself. § God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love … in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

Each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

“Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?” … And the King will answer and say to them, “… Inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me. § Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”

Ex. 2:9; Matt. 20:4; Mark 9:41; Prov. 11:25;
Heb. 6:10; 1 Cor. 3:8; Matt. 25:37–38, 40; 25:34


You comprehend my path and my lying down.

Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. § When you lie down, you will not be afraid; yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet. § So He gives His beloved sleep.

Ps. 139:3; Gen. 28:16–17; 2 Chron. 16:9; Ps. 4:8; 91:9–11; Prov. 3:24; Ps. 127:2
