"In the poorest of cottages are books: is one book, wherein for several thousands of years the spirit of man has found light, and nourishment, and an interpreting response to whatever is deepest in him."
"What is a home without the Bible?
'Tis a home where daily bread
For the Body is provided,
But the soul is never fed."
"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
Psalm 119: 105
"The stars, that in their courses roll,
How much instruction given;
But Thy good Word informs my soul,
How I may climb to heaven."
"The Bible is a book of faith, and a book of doctrine, and a book of religion, of special relevation from God; but it is also a book which teaches man his own individual responsibility, his own dignity, and his equality with his fellow man."
How to read the scriptures
1) Set aside a little time, if you can, every morning and every evening for this purpose.
2) At each time, if you have leisure, read a chapter out of Old and one outt of the New Testament. (If you cannot do this, take a single chapter, or part of one)
3) Read it with a single eye, to know the whole will of God, and a fixed rresolution to do it.
4) Have a constant eye on the analogy of faith, the connection and harmony there is between those grand, fundamental doctrines; original sin, justification by faith, the new birrth, inward and outward holiness.
May God's blessing be upon you. See you next month.
