Psalms 72:0

The outlook seems dubious when we see (1) but a 'handful' of corn, (2) and that 'in the earth' one handful for a whole world, (3) and some on the top of the mountains. But it is reassuring when we know (1) that it is corn God's good wheat, (2) that even on the top of the mountains its fruit shakes like Lebanon. What will it be in the richer valleys? What were the words of Jesus but a handful of corn, and that upon the top of the mountains? But it is the only seed that can produce its harvest in every land, in every corner of the world.
