The blessing of the Lord it maketh rich, And he addeth no sorrow therewith. The secret lies in Ramke's walk with God, and continual waiting upon him. " From me is thy fruit found." "He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit."

But, alas, this Peter sadly failed from the want of a perfect surrender and sustained fellowship with his Lord. The little more, and how much it is, The little less,
