March 6 Evening Quotes of The Day

Leaning on Christ Alone
Proverbs 3:5; Song of Songs 8:5; 2 Kings 18:21; Isaiah 36:6

Everything that a man leans upon but God will be a dart that will certainly pierce his heart through and through.… He that leans only upon the bosom of Christ lives the highest, choicest, safest, and sweetest life.

Comparing Ourselves to God Shows Our True Selves
Luke 18:9–14; Romans 3:9–24; 5:12–21

Such is our innate pride that we always seem to ourselves just, and upright, and wise, and holy, until we are convinced, by clear evidence, of our injustice, vileness, folly, and impurity. We are not convinced, however, if we look only to ourselves, and not to the Lord also—He being the only standard by the application of which this conviction can be produced. For, since we are all naturally prone to hypocrisy, any empty semblance of righteousness is quite enough to satisfy us instead of righteousness itself.
