Bible Reading

Remember that it is not hasty reading,
but serious meditation on holy and heavenly truths,
that makes them prove sweet and profitable to the soul.

It is not the mere touching of the flower by the bee that gathers
honey, but her abiding for a time on the flower that draws out the
sweet.

It is not he that reads most, but he that meditates most, that will
prove to be the choicest, sweetest, wisest, and strongest Christian.

    Fantastic quote by Brooks!

    Those Puritans from the 1600’s sure knew the difference between mere reading and meditating…and it shows in their writings which still speak to our hearts today.
