Restoration

“But the pious reader may want to know what is meant by the expression quoted above, namely, ‘God always keeps us up to the original terms’. Well, it simply means this, that when God calls us to any special position or path, and we fall short of it, or wander from it, He will recall us to it again and again. And further, when we set out under some special principle of action or standard of devotedness, and swerve from it, or fall below it, He will remind us of it, and bring us back to it. True, He bears with us patiently, and waits on us graciously; but ‘He always keeps us up to the original terms’.” C.H. Mackintosh

Moore to Ponder

Below are some great thoughts but they were not written by me, but by a man named C. H. Mackintosh. He lived in the 19th century. I hope they bless you.
