Giving is true having.
      - [Benevolence]

Good thoughts are blessed guests, and should be heartily welcomed, well fed, and much sought after. Like rose leaves, they give out a sweet smell if laid up in the jar of memory.
      - [Thought]

Great faith must have great trials.
      - [Trials]

Habits, soft and pliant at first, are like some coral stones, which are easily cut when first quarried, but soon become hard as adamant.
      - [Habit]

He that buildeth his nest upon a Divine promise shall find it abide and remain until he shall fly away to the land where promises are lost in fulfillments.
      - [Faith in God]

He who boasts of being perfect is perfect in folly. I never saw a perfect man. Every rose has its thorns, and every day its night. Even the sun shows spots, and the skies are darkened with clouds; and faults of some kind nestle in every bosom.
      - [Perfection]

He who climbs above the cares of this world and turns his face to his God, has found the sunny side of life.
      - [Care]

Home is the grandest of all institutions.
      - [Home]

Hundreds would never have known want if they had not first known waste.
      - [Want]

I will say broadly that I have more confidence in the spiritual life of the children that I have received into this church than I have in the, spiritual condition of the adults thus received. I will even go further than that, and say that I have usually found a clearer knowledge of the gospel and a warmer love of Christ in the child-converts than in the man-converts. I will even astonish you still more by saying that I have sometimes met with a deeper spiritual experience in children of ten and twelve than I have in certain persons of fifty and sixty.
      - [Children's Day]

I would sooner walk in the dark, and hold hard to a promise of my God, than trust in the light of the brightest day that ever dawned.
      - [Trust]

Idleness is the key of beggary.
      - [Idleness]

If a crooked stick is before you, you need not explain how crooked it is. Lay a straight one down by the side of it, and the work is well done. Preach the truth, and error will stand abashed in its presence.
      - [Error]

If you have no share in the living Lord may God have mercy upon you! If you have no share in Christ's rising from the dead then you will not be raised up in the likeness of His glorified body. If you do not attain to that resurrection from among the dead then you must abide in death.
      - [Easter]

If you tell your troubles to God, you put them into the grave; they will never rise again when you have committed them to Him. If you roll your burden anywhere else, it will roll back again like the stone of Sisyphus.
      - [Calamities]

In agony unknown He bleeds away His life; in terrible throes He exhausts His soul. "Eloi! Eloi! lama sabachthani?" And then see! they pierce His side, and forthwith runneth out blood and water! This is the shedding of blood, the terrible pouring out of blood, without which, for you and the whole human race, there is no remission.
      - [Death of Christ]

Incredulity is not wisdom.
      - [Incredulity]

Jesus has redeemed not only our souls, but our bodies. When the Lord shall deliver His captive people out of the land of the enemy He will not leave a bone of one of them in the adversary's power. The dominion of death shall be utterly broken.
      - [Easter]

Let no knowledge satisfy but that which lifts above the world, which weans from the world, which makes the world a footstool.
      - [Knowledge]

Losses and crosses are heavy to bear; but when our hearts are right with God, it is wonderful how easy the yoke becomes.
      - [Cross]

Most of the grand truths of God have to be learned by trouble; they must be burned into us by the hot iron of affliction, otherwise we shall not truly receive them.
      - [Affliction]

My trust is not that I am holy, but that, being unholy, Christ died for me. My rest is here, not in what I am or shall be or feel or know, but in what Christ is and must be,--in what Christ did and is still doing as He stands before yonder throne of glory.
      - [Trust]

Never try to save out of God's cause; such money will canker the rest. Giving to God is no loss; it is putting your substance in the best bank. Giving is true having, as the old gravestone said of the dead man "What I spend had, what I saved I lost; what I gave I have."
      - [Benevolence]

Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.
      - [Bible]

Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, but only empties today of its strength.
      - [Anxiety]
