seek toluive their treasure where they 1st
long. His disciples limy huvu thought, as Hu
told of tho mini building larger burns in
which to store his corn, well, we shall not lie
troubled that way; but the question with us
is, now that we have left all to follow Him,
what nlsuit tll necessaries of life, our fissl
