Serious Meditation

Remember that it is not hasty reading, but serious meditation on holy and heavenly truths, that makes them prove sweet and profitable to the soul.

It is not the mere touching of the flower by the bee that gathers honey, but her abiding for a time on the flower that draws out the sweet.

It is not he that reads most, but he that meditates most, that will prove to be the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian. 

[Thomas Brooks]

Psalm 19:14 ...  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 49:3 ... My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

Psalm 104:34 ...  My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.❤
