If it is not the aim of your heart to practice what you read, to what end do you read?
To increase your own condemnation? If your light and knowledge is not turned into practice, the more knowing man you are, the more miserable man you will be in the day of recompense!…
Therefore read and labor to know, that you may DO–or else you are undone for ever!
Remember, it is not hasty reading, but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul.
It is not the bee’s touching of the flower that gathers honey, but her abiding for a time upon the flower that draws out the sweet.
It is not he who reads most, but he who meditates most–who will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian!
Remember, read and labor to know!

Something to ponder:
Thomas Brooks, “Riches and honors and titles, and all worldly grandeur–won’t go with us beyond the grave. Death, as a porter, stands at the gate, and strips men of all their worldly wealth and glory!”

Arthur Pink: “Because God is God indeed–He does as He pleases, only as He pleases, always as He pleases. His great concern is the promotion of His own glory. He is the Supreme Being, and therefore Sovereign of the universe!”
