It is Christlike work to soothe and sympathize, and only those who have drunk the cup of sorrow are fully equipped to do it.
If you are too busy to pray then you are too busy.
Sympathy is a shallow stream in the souls of those who have not suffered.
The Christian feels that the tooth of time gnaws all books but the Bible…19 centuries of experience have tested it. It has passed through critical fires no other volume has suffered and its spiritual truth has endured the flames and come out without so much as the smell of burning.
