Several years ago one of my sisters and brothers-in-law took my father’s Bible and copied all of his hand-written notes within. They compiled it into a little booklet entitled ‘Words of Worth.’
Below are a few excerpts…
“Man is not his own maker. Therefore, he must not be his own master.” – Leonard Ravenhill
There is always chaff where you have wheat, but there shouldn’t be more chaff than wheat! – Anonymous
Sing lustily and with good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or asleep; but lift up your voice with strength. Be no more afraid of your voice now, nor more ashamed of its being heard than when you sang the songs of Satan. – John Wesley
We are not storehouses, but channels.
We are not cisterns, but springs, passing our benefits onward,
Fitting our blessings with wings; letting the water flow onward
To spread o’er the desert forlorn; sharing our bread with our brothers,
Our comfort with those who mourn.
Man sees a body struggling with pain, God sees a spirit growing strong again.
Man sees but weakness – God sees new power; a saint is learning patience with every trying hour.
Man sees but sickness, counts the healing slow. God is rejoicing to see a loved one grow.
Man sees days wasted – God counts them gain. For faith as sweet as childhood is growing out of pain.
Man feels a sorrow rising in his breast. God in his wisdom leadeth into rest.
Man sees the present – God sees the goal. And by seeming bondage is setting free the soul.
– V. Raymond Edman
Someone once asked George Whitefiled, “Is that man over there a Christian?” Whitefield replied, “I don’t know, I haven’t talked to his wife.”
The question is not the sincerity with what we believe, but the truth of what we believe. – Anon
Working on ourselves all the time produces a warped saint. Our best improvement comes roundabout – indirectly – as we help one another along. – Vance Havner
