Charles Haddon Spurgeon — The morning is the gate of the day…

The morning is the gate of the day, and should be well guarded with prayer. It is one end of the thread on which the day’s actions are strung, and should be well knotted with devotion. If we felt more the majesty of life we should be more careful of its mornings. He who rushes from his bed to his business and without worship is as foolish as though he had not put on his clothes, or washed his face, and as unwise as thought he dashed into battle without arms or armor.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon


Unknown — As the minister stepped up to the pulpit…

As the minister stepped up to the pulpit he discovered to his chagrin that he had forgotten his sermon notes. As it was too late to send someone for them, he turned to the congregation and said, by way of apology, that this morning he should have to depend upon the Lord for what he might say, but that for the evening service, he would be better prepared.
