Sowing in Tears

The spiritual redemption which was effected by Jesus Christ is
the Christian's highest consolation and joy; and the greatest
miracle which God ever wrought among men.  God often
so deals with His children, that they receive greater blessings
than they themselves had hoped for.  It is our duty as Christians
to remember before God, in our prayers, those who are in
distress and have been wrongly imprisoned.  The tears of true
repentance and of sanctified affliction are a precious seed, from
which will spring a joyful harvest.  In the kingdom of nature
the seed bears after its own kind, but God has a different
order for believers in the kingdom of glory.  They sow tears
and reap joy.  Where nothing is sown, nothing will be harvested.
