As God did not at first choose you because you were high, so He will not forsake you because you are low.
— John Flavel
Aspire to be something more than the mass of church members. Lift up your cry to God and beseech him to fire you with a nobler ambition than that which possesses the common Christian — that you may be found faithful unto God at the last, and may win many crowns for your Lord and Master, Christ.
— C. H. Spurgeon
