(J.R. Miller) A flower blooms no more sweetly, because it is gazed at by an admiring crowd. It would be just as lovely, if it grew in the depths of a great forest where no eye ever saw it. The stars look down with as much brilliancy into the desert, where no one looks up at them--as into t... Read more...

 (J.C. Ryle, "Happiness" 1878) It is an utter mistake to suppose that RICHES alone can give happiness. They can enable a man to command and possess everything--but inward peace! They cannot buy a cheerful spirit and a light heart. There... Read more...

(James Smith) "In everything give thanks!" 1 Thessalonians 5:18 Everything we enjoy, should be viewed as coming from the gracious and liberal hand of our sovereign God. All was forfeited by our sin.

(James Smith, "Whose Slave Are You?")   There are two distinct classes of slaves in the world, and it is important to know to which we belong. The apostle teaches us how to do this when he says, "Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves--yo... Read more...

(Charles Spurgeon) "I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever!" Psalm 52:8 Meditate a little on the mercy of God. It is tender mercy. With gentle, loving touch, He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. He is as gracious in the manner of His mercy--as in the matter of it. It is great mercy. There is nothing little in God; His mercy is like Himself--infinite. You cannot measure it. His mercy is so great--that it forgive... Read more...

(Arthur Pink, 1949) "Her ways are ways of pleasantness--and all her paths are peace!" Proverbs 3:17 The Satan-deceived world imagines that godliness is a thing of gloom--rather than of gladness; that it is something which the saints endure--rather th... Read more...

(J. C. Ryle) Humility is one of the strongest evidences of the indwelling of the Spirit of God. We know nothing of humility by nature--for we are all born proud. To convince us of sin, to show us our own vileness and corruption, to put us in our right place, to make us humble and self-abased -... Read more...
