Quote of the Day #133 - Richard Sibbes


A quote from The Bruised Reed, by Richard Sibbes:
The Holy Ghost is content to dwell in smoky, offensive souls. Oh, that that Spirit would breathe into our spirits the same merciful disposition! We endure the bitterness of wormwood, and other distasteful plants and herbs, only because we have some experience of some wholesome quality in them; and why should we reject men of useful parts and graces, only for some harshness of disposition, which, as it is offensive to us, so it grieves themselves?
~Richard Sibbes (The Bruised Reed, Chapter 5)
