a wise servant

To my great regret, I never heard Rev. Fraser Macdonald preach except on cassette recording. If you have never listened go here. He was gifted by the Lord with abundance of utterance, a ready mind and the tongue of a ready writer.  "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver" (Prov. 25:11)."Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?" (Matthew 24:45)  That wise servant has entered into the joy of his Lord.  "The king's favour is toward a wise servant" (Proverbs 14:35).

One obituary notes:
"He was blessed with a rich, resonant voice; he had extraordinary command of vocabulary, pitch and cadence, and could move in moments from down-to-earth tender clarity to the majesty of the seis, the traditional, ringing chant of Gaelic preaching".
