Pithy gems from Richard Baxter!

  ~ ~ ~ ~

Nothing below Heaven is worth setting our hearts upon!

  ~ ~ ~ ~

Keep up a humble sense of your own faults and that will make you compassionate to others.

  ~ ~ ~ ~

Unity in things necessary,
Liberty in things unnecessary,
and Charity in all things.

  ~ ~ ~ ~

Speak to your people as to those who must be awakened, either here or in Hell!
We must screw the truth into men's minds!

  ~ ~ ~ ~

What we most value we shall think no pains too great to gain.

Be of good cheer, Christian, the time is near when God and you shall be as near as you can desire. You shall dwell in His family! You shall then have joy without sorrow and rest without weariness!
