July 26 Morning Quotes of The Day

Friendship Is Better Than the Light
1 Samuel 18:1–3; Proverbs 17:17; 27:9, 17; 1 Thessalonians 2:8

A friend is more to be longed for than the light; I speak of a genuine one. And do not wonder: For it would be better for us that the sun should be extinguished than that we should be deprived of friends; better to live in darkness than to be without friends. And I will tell you why: Because many who see the sun are in darkness, but they can never even be in tribulation who abound in friends.

“Sin Is a Downward Road”
Psalm 95:8; Proverbs 10:23; 2 Corinthians 2:11; 1 Timothy 4:2; James 3:5–6; 1 John 3:4–9

Smaller sins, if not guarded against in time, will issue in the greatest.… Sin will soon blind the eyes, and harden the heart, and sear the conscience. Sin is a downward road, whereon, if we fall, our descent may soon be accelerated beyond a possibility of recovery. A leak may appear but a small thing; yet will it sink a ship, if left without timely repair.
