Take this child away and nurse him for me

Daily Light Devotions - June 20 - Morning

Take this child away and nurse him for me ...

And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages." So the woman took the child and nursed him. 1

and to them he said, 'You go into the vineyard too, and whatever is right I will give you.' 2

For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward. 3

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered. 4

For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.  5

He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor.  6

Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.' Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.  7
