Not Hasty Reading, But Serious Meditation Upon Scripture
Remember, 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, which gathers honey—but her abiding for a time upon the flower, which draws out the sweet.
It is not he who reads most—but he who meditates most, who will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.
