A Daily Rate

And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life...

2 Kings 25:30

"Charge not thyself with the weight of a year,
Child of the Master, faithful and dear,
Choose not the cross for the coming week,
For that is more than he bids thee seek,
Bend not thine arms for to-morrow's load,
Thou mayest leave that to they gracious God,
Daily, only he says to thee,
'Take up thy cross and follow me.'"

"She smiled to herself in the dim light and thought this must be part of the Master's plan to fix it so that she could do this duty and her others also. This was all he asked her to do, just what she had strength for. He gave her the daily allowance of that. "
