Harvey Newcomb on Reading the Scriptures

     "Whenever we open this blessed book, this should be the sincere inquiry of our heart: 'Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?' Let us come to it with this childlike spirit of obedience, and we shall not fail to learn the will of God. But when we have learned our duty in God's word, the next thing is, to do it without delay. First, there must be an earnest desire to know the present duty, and then a steadfast and settled determination to do it as soon as it is known. The pressure of obligation rests upon the present moment; and, when the present duty is ascertained, the delay of a single moment is sin."
