Therefore read and labor to know…

(Thomas Brooks)

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!
