AN EARNEST MAN.

HALF-A-DOZEN words from a tender mother to a boy who is just leaving
home for an apprenticeship, may drop like gentle dew from heaven upon
him. A few sentences from a kind and prudent father given to the daughter,
still unconverted, as she enters upon her married life, and to her husband,
kindly and affectionately put, may make that household for ever a house of
God. A kind word dropped by a brother to a sister, a little letter written
from a sister to her brother, though it should be only a line or two, may be
God\u2019s arrow of grace. I have known even such little things as a tear or an
anxious glance work wonders.

You perhaps may have heard the story of Mr. Whitefield, who made it his
wont wherever he stayed to talk to the members of the household about
their souls \u2014 with each one personally; but stopping at a certain house
with a Colonel, who was all that could be wished except a Christian, he
was so pleased with the hospitality he received and so charmed with the
general character of the good Colonel and his wife and daughters, that he
did not like to speak to them about decision as he would have done if they
had been less amiable characters. He had stopped with them for a week,
and during the last night, the Spirit of God visited him so that he could not
sleep. \u201cThese people,\u201d said he, \u201chave been very kind to me, and I have not
been faithful to them; I must do it before I go; I must tell them that
whatever good thing they have, if they do not believe in Jesus they are
lost.\u201d He arose and prayed. After praying he still felt contention in his
spirit. His old nature said, \u201cI cannot do it,\u201d but the Holy Spirit seemed to
say, \u201cLeave them not without warning.\u201d At last he thought of a device, and
prayed God to accept it; he wrote upon a diamond-shaped pane of glass in
the window with his ring these words: \u2014 \u201cOne thing thou lackest.\u201d He
could not bring himself to speak to them, but went his way with many a
prayer for their conversion. He had no sooner gone than the good woman
of the house, who was a great admirer of him, said, \u201cI will go up to his
room: I like to look at the very place where the man of God has been.\u201d She
went up and noticed on the window-pane those words, \u201cOne thing thou
lackest.\u201d It struck her with conviction in a moment. \u201cAh!\u201d said she, \u201cI
thought he did not care much about us, for I knew he always pleaded with
those with whom he stopped, and when I found that he did not do so with
us, I thought we had vexed him: but I see how it was; he was too tender in
