Stealing The Word

The sea-mews catch the fish for themselves, but the skuas pursue them and rob them of their prey. The thievish skuas will not trouble themselves to dip into the ocean to get their own food, but live on what others bring out. Are there not many of God's people who get their spiritual living in much the same way, who will not take time to dive into the ocean of God's Word to get food for themselves, but who are constantly found hunting after those who do that they might take it from them. There is plenty in the sea for all. "Search the Scriptures" (John 5:39).
