A married state is, or should be, a state of rest to young people. Wandering affections are then fixed, and the heart must be at rest....That which should be desired and designed by those that enter into the married state is that it may be well with them, in order to which it is necessary that they choose well; otherwise, instead of being a rest to them, it may prove the greatest uneasiness. Parents, in disposing of their children, must have this in their eye, that it may be well with them. And be it always remembered that is best for us which is best for our souls. (3.) It is the duty of parents to seek this rest for their children, and to do all that is fit for them to do, in due time, in order to it. And the more dutiful and respectful they are to them, though they can the worse spare them, yet they should the rather prefer them, and the better.

Our blessed Saviour is our Goel; it is he that has a right to redeem. If we expect to receive benefit by him, let us closely adhere to him, and his fields, and his family; let us not go to the world and its fields for that which is to be had with him only, and which he has encouraged us to expect from him. Has the Lord dealt bountifully with us?

God wisely orders small events; and those that seem altogether contingent serve his own glory and the good of his people. Many a great affair is brought about by a little turn, which seemed fortuitous to us, but was directed by Providence with design.

Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.


He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.


Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:


But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

"But what is deadly to the soul of man is the conception that Evil is a subject of Knowledge as well as Good.  For this reason: that by thinking of Evil as a subject to be studied, we thereby attribute to it a substantive existence of its own: in other words we look upon it as having a self-originating power, which as we advance in our studies more and more clearly is not the case.  And so, by the law of creating working of Thought,  we bring Evil into existence."
