June 22 Evening Quotes of The Day

Ministers Are to Reprove Without Naming
Acts 24:22–27

The minister is to reprove the sins of all, but to name none. Paul, being to preach before a lascivious and unrighteous prince, touched him to the quick, but did not name him in his sermon. Felix’s conscience saved Paul that labor; he trembled, though Paul did not say he meant him.

Not Contending to Overthrow
Matthew 18:15; 2 Timothy 2:25

Our endeavour is not so much to overthrow those with whom we contend, as to yield them just and reasonable causes of those things which, for want of due consideration heretofore, they misconceived.
