*****NO DAILY DEVOTION 17-18 NOVEMBER 2016. *****
Please meditate on these “pithy gems” from John Calvin and Matthew Henry.
Short pithy gems from John Calvin!
Man’s heart, so to speak, is a perpetual factory of idols!
When the Bible speaks–God speaks!
Nothing, including human suffering, happens by chance.
No one will calmly and quietly submit to bear the cross–except those who have learned to seek their happiness beyond this world!
Without the fear of God–men do not even observe justice among themselves!
The human heart has so many crannies where vanity hides, so many holes where falsehood works, and is so decked out with deceiving hypocrisy–that it often dupes itself!
Short pithy gems from the Puritan Matthew Henry
We cannot expect too little from man–nor too much from God!
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.
We should take heed of pride–it is the sin that turned angels into devils!
God is either your best friend–or your worst enemy.
Knowledge is vain and fruitless–which is not reduced to practice.
