We kick against it; we often fight and rebel against it, but depend upon it, each one’s pathway and training, whether we serve God in public or in private, is justly managed by our great and wise and glorious Lord.

Now Moses we are told by Stephen, was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he was mighty in words and in deeds—that is, the whole compass of science, and of earthly knowledge so far as the…
