One preacher I love

(J.R. Miller, “The Glory of the Commonplace”)

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:25-26One preacher I love

Martin Luther, referring to the sin of worrying, says: “I have one preacher that I love better than any other on earth; it is my little tame robin, who preaches to me daily. I put some crumbs upon my window sill, especially at night. He hops onto the window sill when he wants his supply, and takes as much as he desires to satisfy his need. From thence he always hops to a little tree close by, lifts up his voice to God and sings his carol of praise and gratitude, then tucks his little head under his wing, goes fast to sleep, and leaves tomorrow to care for itself. He is the best preacher that I have on earth!”

(Charles Spurgeon)

“He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their
He counts the stars and calls them
all by name.
How great is our Lord! His power
is absolute! His understanding is beyond
comprehension!” Psalm 147:3-5

He who counts the stars and calls them by
their names, is in no danger of forgetting His
own children! He knows your case as thoroughly
as if you were the only creature He ever made,
or the only saint He ever loved!
