April 27 Evening Quotes of The Day

Finding Excellency and Happiness in Christ
Ecclesiastes 2:1–23; Hebrews 4:8–10

Worldly men imagine that there is true excellency and true happiness in those things that they are pursuing. They think that if they could but obtain them, they should be happy; and when they obtain them, and cannot find happiness, they look for happiness in something else, and are still upon the pursuit. But Christ Jesus has true excellency, and so great excellency that when they come to see it they look no further, but the mind rests there.

The Heart’s Capacity for Deceiving Itself
Proverbs 20:9; Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 17:9–10; Titus 3:3; 1 John 1:8

The human heart has so many recesses for vanity, so many lurking places for falsehood, is so shrouded by fraud and hypocrisy, that it often deceives itself.
