Excerpt from Bible Jewels
Natural jewels are so valuable that many of us can never afford to buy them. Nor is this necessary, for we can be happy without them. But these Bible jewels are a thousand times more valuable, and with out them we cannot be happy. Yet, valuable as they are, the poorest person who reads this book, whether young or old, may become the owner of all the Bible jewels of which it speaks. And this is the reason why this book was written. The hope and prayer of the writer is that every one who reads these pages may try to get all these precious Bible jewels. Try first to get Jesus, the Pearl of great price. And when he is yours, ask him to give you all the other jewels here described. They belong to Jesus. He has them to give away. He will give them to all who earnestly ask for them. Ask him to give them to you. Then how rich and happy, how good and useful, you will be! And when Jesus shall come to make up his jewels you will be gathered with them, and will shine in beauty forever among the bright and glori ous things of his heavenly kingdom.
The graphic illustrations accompanying this volume were kindly furnished by our gifted young artist, Mr. A. G. Heaton, to whom the author tenders his most cordial thanks.
