“The nearer a soul is to God, the less its perturbations, as the point nearest the center of a circle is subject to the least motion.”

“WHATSOEVER we bestow let it be given with a cheerful countenance; a man must not give with his hand and deny with his heart.”

———-

ARE we growing in the knowledge of what Christ is to us? It is a happy life this; for it is not a mere self emptying, it is a process of Christ filling.”

———-

“NEARNESS of life to the Savior will necessarily involve greatness of love to him. As nearness to the sun increases the temperature of the various planets, so near and intimate communion with Jesus raises the heat of the soul’s affections towards him.”

———-

COMMUNION with God must ever hold a higher place than service for God. Do we realize it?

———-

“If you wish to do good, do good; if you wish to assist people, assist people. The only way to learn to do a thing is to do it; and that implies, before you learn to do right you will do wrong. You will make blunders, you will have failures; but persevere, and in the end you will learn your lessons, and many other lessons by the way.”

“OUR lives should be like the days, more beautiful in the evening; or like the seasons, aglow with promise, and the autumn rich with golden sheaves, where good words and deeds have ripened on the field.”

———-

THE zeal and enthusiasm of sinners in the service of the devil should put to shame the indifference and sloth of Christians in the service of God.

“THE man whose honor cannot be trusted in a business transaction is an infidel, though he superintends a dozen evangelical Sunday-schools, presides at the noonday prayer-meetings, and is accounted the most polished pillar of the church.”

“‘GIVE me neither poverty nor riches,’ said Agur; and this will ever be the prayer of the wise. Our income should be like our shoes, if too small they will gall and pinch us, but if too large they will cause us to stumble and to trip. Wealth, after all, is a relative thing, since he that has little and wants less, is richer than he that has much and wants more. True contentment depends not upon what we have; a tub was large enough for Diogenes, but a world was too small for Alexander.”
