Quote of the Day #82 - Cotton Mather


A quote from Cotton Mather:
Knowledge, Knowledge; To get good Knowledge, let that be the First Care of them that would be Saved. Knowledge, 'Tis a Principal thing; My Child, Get Knowledge; with all thy might, Get understanding. Oh! That this Resolution might immediately be made in the minds of all our people; I will get as much Knowledge as ever I can!

The Word of God must be Read and Heard with Diligence that so you may arrive to the Knowledge that is needful for you.

The Catechisms in which you have the Word of God fitted for your more early Apprehension of it must be diligently Studied.

Unto all the other Means of Knowledge, there must be added, Humble and Earnest Supplications before the Glorious Lord, You must cry to God for Knowledge, and lift up your Voice to Him for Understanding; Prefer it before Silver, Before any Earthy Treasures.
~Cotton Mather (What Must I Do To Be Saved?)
