Beloved, ‘let the word of God dwell in you plenteously,’ Col. iii. 16. Do not give it a cold entertainment, as you would do to a stranger, and so take your leave of it; but esteem it as your best familiar and bosom friend: making it your chamber-fellow study-fellow, bed-fellow. Let it have the best room and the best bed; the parlour of our conscience, the resting-place in our heart. Neglected things are outside the door, less respected within, but near the door. The more worthy things are not trusted to the safety of one door, but kept under many locks and keys. Give earthly things little regard, preserve them with a more removed care. But this pearl of inestimable value, Matt, xiii. 46, this jewel purer than gold of Ophir, Ps. cxix. 127; lay it not up in the porter’s lodge, the outward ear, but in the cabinet and most inward closure of thy heart. Deut. xi. 18, ‘Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul.’ —Thomas Adams

Ignorance is a sore sickness in a church, whether it be in the superior or subordinate members; especially when ‘the priest’s lips preserve not knowledge.’ Ill goes it with the body when the eyes are blind. Devotion without instruction often winds itself into superstition. When learning’s head is kept under averice’s girdle, the land grows sick. Experience has made this conclusion too clear. Our forefathers felt the terror and tyranny of this affliction; who had golden chalices, and wooden priests, who had either no art or no heart to teach the people. Sing not, thou Roman siren, that ignorance is the dam of devotion, to breed it; it is rather a dam to stifle, restrain, and choke it up. Blindness is plausible to please men, not possible to please God. It is time that our faults in the light are more heinous then theirs who wanted true knowledge. Yet in all reason their sins did exceed in number, who knew not when they went astray, or what was amiss.—Thomas Adams
