Preface - Samuel calleth upon the people, and receiveth from them an ample justification of his integrity. He chargeth them with ingratitude in rejecting God's government, and warneth them against future disobedience. To convince them of their offence in asking a king, he calleth for thunder and rain in the time of harvest to their great dismay; but encourageth them with the assurance of divine favour, if they will but fear the Lord, and serve him heartily.
1 Samuel 12

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. - Luke 10 v 42
Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Everything else can be taken away from you, your money, your friends, etc: but if you have once embraced the Lamb of God, you have that good part which shall never be taken away from you. You are chosen to 'an inheritance incorruptible, undefiled, and that fadeth not away.' Then we can say without any fear, 'The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.'
