THE BURDE-BEARERS.BY GEORGE MATHESO" He gave wagons unto the sons of Merari ; but unto the sonsof Kohath he gave none, because the service of the sanctuarybelonging unto them was that they should bear upon theirshoulders."— umbers vii. 8, 9.There are two sets of men in this world — the sons ot Merari and the sons of Kohath — the men who have wagons and the men whohave none. It is very much the distinctionbetween the labouring and the heavy-laden.The men who have wagons are the world'sactive souls. They have their own share of griefs, but they have influences that can liftthem. They have to go out to their dailywork. They have to visit the exchange. Theyhave to transact buying and selling. In atime of grief this necessity may be a pain, butit is also a cure. The rolling wheels of worldly labour carry away one-half theburden from the sons of Merari. But with226 Leaves for Quiet Hours.the sons of Kohath it is very different. Theseare the passive souls of life. They have nowagons, no influences to divert them fromtheir grief; they carry it all on their ownshoulders. They are incapacitated from out-ward work ; they have to stay at home. Andbecause they have to stay at home they are thevictims of self-reflection ; their sorrow turnsin upon itself. The sons of Kohath seem the
 
less heroic, but they are really the most tobe pitied. They can do nothing to lift theirburden, nothing to make it lighter to the house-hold.

You are finishing the actualLeaves for Quiet Hours. 227work which your Father has given you to do.You have been always lamenting that yourwork has been postponed. You have beencrying from morn to eve, " If some one wouldonly lift this load from my shoulders, I woulddo my part in the world." ay, ye sons of Kohath, this is your part in the world, thisis the service which ^^ belongs to you." Youhave not been shunted from the line, God'sline. In the sanctuary of the Lord **theyalso serve who only stand and wait." ay, Iwill go further ; I will say, '* They also servewho only lie down and are waited upon."Think you that the sick do no work for thehealthy! They present the very food onwhich charity lives and breathes. The sonsof ^lerari would be poor creatures without
