“Serious meditating” by Thomas Brooks

“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.”

–Thomas Brooks, Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices in The Complete Works of Thomas Brooks, Vol. 1, Ed. Alexander B. Grosart (Edinburgh: James Nichol, 1866), 8.
