    Thomas Watson on:    

How may we know that we are rightly thankful? When we are careful to register God's mercy... Physicians say the memory is the first thing that decays; it is true in spirituals.

A man may read the figures on the dial, but he cannot tell how the day goes unless the sun is shining on it; so we may read the Bible over, but we cannot learn to purpose till the spirit of God shine upon it and into out hearts.

    Topics: The Bible, Fire

There is but one God, and they that serve him should be one. There is nothing that would render the true religion more lovely, or make more proselytes to it, than to see the professors of it tied together with the heart strings of love. If God be one, let all that profess him be of one mind, and one heart, and thus fulfil Christ's prayer, "that they all may be one."
