Blessing in the City
If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, blessed shalt thou be in the city.
(Deuteronomy 28:2-3)

The city is full of care, and he who has to go there daily finds it to be a place of great wear
and tear. It is full of noise, stirs, bustle, and sore travail; many are its temptations, losses, and
worries. But to go there with the divine blessing takes off the edge of its difficulty; to remain there with
that blessing is to find pleasure in its duties and strength equal to its demands.
A blessing in the city may not make us great, but it will keep us good; it may not make us rich, but it
will preserve us honest. Whether we are porters, clerks, managers, merchants, or
magistrates, the city will afford us opportunities for usefulness. It is good fishing where there are
shoals of fish, and it is hopeful to work for our Lord amid the thronging crowds. We might prefer the
quiet of country life; but if called to town, we may certainly prefer it because there is room for our
Today let us expect good things because of this promise, and let our care be to have an open ear to
the voice of the Lord and a ready hand to execute His bidding. Obedience brings blessing. “In
keeping his commandments there is great reward.”
