April 14 Evening Quotes of The Day

Tendency to Be Distracted During Worship
Psalm 19:12; Jeremiah 4:14

We bear in our own bosom a nest of turbulent thoughts, which, like busy gnats, will be buzzing about us while we are in our most inward and spiritual converses. Many wild beasts lurk in a man’s heart, as in a close and covert wood, and scarce discover themselves but at our solemn worship.

Reason Not Destroyed, but Ruined
Romans 7:7–25; 12:2; Hebrews 5:14

Since reason, by which man discerns between good and evil, and by which he understands and judges, is a natural gift, it could not be entirely destroyed; but being partly weakened and partly corrupted, a shapeless ruin is all that remains.
