Thomas Brooks on reading the Bible

20 12 2011

“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 the honey, but her abiding for a time upon the flower that draws out the sweet.  It is not he that he that reads most, but he that meditates most, that will prove choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.”

-Thomas Brooks, Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices pg 22
