Rich in meditation—rich in grace!

(Thomas Case, "The Rod and the Word, A Treatise on Afflictions" 1653)

"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night." Psalm 1:1-2

Take heed of feeding your heart's corruption with thoughts of the sweetness that is in sin.

Take heed also, of starving grace by withdrawing from it suitable nourishment.

Meditate much upon . . .
  the sinfulness of sin,
  the vanity of the creature,
  the fullness of Christ,
  the exquisiteness of His sufferings,
  the finality of the judgment,
  the torments of Hell,
  the joys of Heaven,
  the infinite perfections of the divine nature,
  and the solemnity of eternity!

Rich in meditation—rich in grace!
