What The Doctor Said To Patient

"You've got it again, whatever it was!"

The man went to the doctor with an ailment. The Dr. took some blood and ran some tests, but found nothing. The man still complained, so the Dr. took a throat culture. Still no results. The man was still ill so the Dr. tried a biopsy. It was all fruitless.

The Dr. said "Have you had this illness before?"

"Yes," the man replied. To which the Dr. said "Well, you've got it again!"

In C. H. SPURGEON's lifetime, while operating his "Pastor's College" it was the practice on Friday afternoon to call upon various ones of the students to exhibit their own ability as preachers (and that without prior knowledge of the subject matter).

On one occasion Spurgeon called upon a student to give a message on "Zaccheus."

The student arose and said: "Zaccheus was little of stature, so am I. Zaccheus was up a tree, so am I. Zaccheus came down, so will I."

Both the students and Mr. Spurgeon applauded the "ingenious" performance.

--Extract from Spurgeon's "Lectures to My Students"


"Even as full wheat in the ear falleth out with the least motion of the sheaf, but that which is somewhat shrunk more hardly leaveth the husk, while that which is altogether shrunk will rather go to the chaff than go out of the ear; so, a sincere-hearted Christian, with the least affliction, leaveth his sin, and flieth to God. The weaker Christian more hardly doeth the same; but the apostate will rather burn with unquenchable fire than forsake his beloved sin, that so he may turn to God."

--From Robert Cawdray's "A Treasury; or, Storehouse of Similes . . etc."


"The Bible is God's chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and show you where the harbor is, and how to reach it without running on rocks or bars."--Henry Ward Beecher
