Without a rag on his
back, or a penny in his purse!
(Thomas Brooks, "An Ark for All God's Noahs"
"The Lord is my portion, says my soul; therefore
I will hope in Him." Lamentations 3:24
Lazarus having God for his
portion, when he died he went
heaven without a rag on his back, or a penny
Whereas Dives, who did not have God for his portion
died--went tumbling down to hell in all his riches,
glory. Oh! it is infinitely better to go to heaven
a beggar--than to go to hell an emperor!
