Some quotes

The Scriptures teach us the best way of living, the noblest way of suffering, and the most comfortable way of dying. ~John Flavel

To forsake Christ for the world, is to leave a treasure for a trifle.... eternity for a moment.... reality for a shadow. ~William Jenkyn

A heathen philosopher once asked: "Where is God?" The Christian answered: "Let me first ask you, where is He not?" ~John Arrowsmith (oh yeahhhh baby!)

God loves adverbs better than nouns: not praying only but praying well; not doing good but doing it well. ~Thomas Brooks

What greater crime than holiness, if the devil may be one of the grand jury! ~Thomas Watson

When the corn is nearly ripe it bows the head and stoops lower than when it was green. When the people of God are near ripe for heaven, they grow more humble and self denying... Paul had one foot in heaven when he called himself the chiefest of all sinners and the least of saints. ~John Flavel

A prudent wife commands her husband by obeying him. ~ John Trapp

When the devil cannot stay us from a good work, then he laboureth by all means to make us proud of it. ~Henry Smith

The end of all learning is to know God, and out of that knowledge to love and imitate Him. ~John Milton

"We love Him because He first loved us." Love is like an echo, it returneth what it receiveth. ~Manton

Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan. ~John Bunyan

The wife was made of the husband's rib; not of his head, for Paul calleth the husband the wife's head; not of the foot, for he must not set her at his foot. The servant is appointed to serve, and the wife to help. If she must not match with the head, nor stoop at the foot, where shall he set her then? He must set her at his heart, and therefore she which should lie in his bosom was made in his bosom. ~Henry Smith
