We find in the Scripture that most of the great appearances which were made to eminent saints were made when they were busy. Moses was keeping his father’s flock when he saw the burning bush; Joshua was going round about the city of Jericho when he met the angel of the Lord; Jacob was in prayer, and the angel of God appeared unto him; Gideon was threshing, and Elisha was ploughing, when the Lord called them; Matthew was at the receipt of custom, when he was bidden to follow Jesus; and James and John were fishing. The Almighty Lover of the souls of men is not wont to manifest Himself to idle persons. He who is slothful and inactive cannot expect to have the sweet company of his Savior.
