My Portion Forever


” ‘He is my portion forever’ (Psalm 73:26).  The good things of this life are but like flowers:  they be for a season, and then they wither:  they are perishing, and of a short continuance.  We carry away nothing of it in our hands, when we go to the grave.  When we leave all other portions and inheritances, then we begin to take possession of this portion; yea, at that time when men see the vanity of making other things their portion, a child of God sees the happiness of his portion, at death.”  –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119, Volume 1, p. 560-561 (Banner of Truth)
