June 20 Evening Quotes of The Day

Guard Your Eyes and Ears
Psalm 101:3; 141:3; Proverbs 17:4, 24; 18:8; 26:22; Matthew 5:29; 18:9; Mark 9:47

Set a strong guard about your outward senses. These are Satan’s landing places, especially the eye and the ear. Take heed what you import at these; vain discourse seldom passes without leaving some tincture upon the heart.… And for your eye, let it not wander; wanton objects cause wanton thoughts.

Laws Are Often Imperfect
Isaiah 10:1–2

Laws, as all other things human, are many times full of imperfection; and that which is supposed proper unto men, proves oftentimes most pernicious.
