Thoughts on Service
If we do not live beyond time, we are not fit to serve in time.
A good workman gains skill by his mistakes.
Look not to the quantity but to the quality of your service, whatsoever that service may be. If it be preaching, preaching is not the first thing; the heart must be kept; then two or three words spoken in the power of the Spirit may avail more than many a long discourse.
The conversion of sinners, the prosperity of saints—these are precious things, but not the object of the soul: that should be to please God.
