Thoughts for today

I was reading two Isobel Kuhn books this morning and I wanted to share a quote from each with you.

"In a young man's Bible were found these words: 'Wanted: wicks to burn out for Christ. Oil and light furnished free.'" ~Children of the Hills


"God does not waste suffering, nor does He discipline out of caprice. If He plough, it is because He purposes a crop."~J. Oswald Sanders in the Forward to Green Leaf in Drought


Just as a side note, the title of the later book comes from Jeremiah 17:7-8. I made these my meditation verses of the day.

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
