The carnal person fears man, not God; the strong Christian fears God, not man; the weak Christian fears man too much, and God too little.
Let all your obedience to God turn upon the hinge of love.
Light of the Incarnation
The reason one does not rejoice in the incarnation is for lack of holy meditation upon the subject, its miraculous nature, the promises, the Person, the fruits and this great salvation brought about by His suffering and death. Wilhelmus à Brakel
One drop of knowledge taught by God, is more excellent than the whole ocean of human knowledge and acquired gifts. John Flavel
Heaven itself is not so valuable and precious as Christ is.
