Pithy gems from Matthew Henry #2

   ~  ~  ~  ~

We cannot expect too little from man–nor too much from God!

~  ~  ~  ~

A garment that is double-dyed, dipped again and again–will retain the color a great while. Just so will a truth which is the subject of meditation.

~  ~  ~  ~

A life spent in the service of God and communion with Him is the most pleasant life that anyone can live in this world.

~  ~  ~  ~

The Bible is a letter God has sent to us.
Prayer is a letter we send to Him.

~  ~  ~  ~

Nature is content with little;
grace is content with less;
lust is content with nothing!

~  ~  ~  ~

Christ’s followers cannot expect better treatment in the world than their Master had.

~  ~  ~  ~

Whatever we have of this world in our hands, our care must be to keep it out of our hearts–lest it come between us and Christ.
