DAVID'S COMPANIONS

From the December 1920 issue of The Christian Science Journal


" Peace , peace be unto thee, and peace be to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. " Who that has applied these glorious words of Amasai, chief of the captains, to his own deliverance from untruth can do otherwise than rejoice, as did David, in the companions sent to him? Though Truth is always at hand as our one and constant helper, leading us beside the still waters and in the paths of righteousness, yet it is only by degrees that this is understood, and so, as we make our stand against the threatening shows of evil, helper after helper seems to come to us, sometimes in one guise, and sometimes in another, but ever on the side of the son of Jesse, considered as the standard bearer of Principle.
