Take Heed How You Walk with Doubting Company

Do you want peace and comfort and quietude of soul? Take heed how you walk with doubting company … one opposer of godliness draws on another, and one adulterer makes another; so one doubting Christian makes another. You that are weak, and full of doubtings, should go and lean upon those that are strong and have full assurance; and you that have assurance should give the shoulder to those that are weak, and say, Come, and lean upon me, and I will be an help unto you. You know how it is with the ivy and the vine; the ivy leans upon the oak, and the vine upon the posts or the house-side; the ivy and the vine do not lean one upon another; if the ivy and the vine should come and lean upon one another, what twisting would there be. Both would fall to the ground: but the ivy leans upon the oak, and the vine upon the posts or the house-side. ~ A Lifting up for the Downcast by William Bridge

A Secure Sinner

“A secure sinner provides for his body, but neglects his soul; like one that waters his flowers, but never minds his jewels.” ~  The Great Gain of Godliness
