A Word from Watson

O think how many mercies you still enjoy; yet your base hearts are more discontented at one loss, than thankful for a hundred mercies! God hath plucked one bunch of grapes from you; but how many precious clusters are left behind?

A Word from Watson

A contented spirit is like a watch: though you carry it up and down with you yet the spring of it is not shaken, nor the wheels out of order, but the watch keeps its perfect motion; so it was with St. Paul, though God carried him into various conditions, yet he was not lift up with the one, nor cast down with the other; the spring of his heart was not broken, the wheels of his affections were not disordered, but kept their constant motion towards heaven, still content.

A Word from Watson

Many Christians are like sieves; put a sieve into the water, and it is full but take it forth of the water, and all runs out: so, while they are hearing a sermon, they remember something; but like the sieve out of the water, as soon as they are gone out of the church, all is forgotten.
