God can send a nation or people no greater blessing than to give them faithful, sincere, and upright ministers.
— George Whitefield
Keep your heart as you would keep a Garden. Your heart is a garden (Song of Solomon 4:12); weed all sin out of your heart. Among the flowers of the heart, weeds will be growing—the weeds of pride, malice, and covetousness: these grow without planting and cultivating. Therefore be weeding your heart daily by prayer, examination, and repentance.
— Thomas Watson
