The Christian in Complete Armour

My sweet girlfriend gave me this devotional for my birthday.  I have begun reading through the meaty pages and here is one of the compelling thoughts to ponder...

“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.”

–William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour
