June 13 Evening Quotes of The Day

Bred and Fed by the Word
Deuteronomy 17:19; 29:9; Acts 17:11

If you mean your hope of salvation should rise to any strength and solidity, study the word of God diligently. The Christian is bred by the word, and he must be fed by it.

War Is Not for Displaying Power
Romans 13:1–7

All actions no way conducive to obtain a contested right, or to bring the war to a termination, but calculated merely to display the strength of either side are totally repugnant to the duties of a Christian and to the principles of humanity. So that it behooves Christian princes to prohibit all unnecessary effusion of blood, as they must render an account of their sovereign commission to him by whose authority, and in whose stead, they bear the sword.
