I would rather be in hell with God than in heaven without him, and it were far safer for me. – John Trapp

COMMENDATION

The praise of them that do well – 1 Peter 2:14

Now I praise you, brethren … but … 1 Corinthians 11:2,3

Only a Christian of strong grace can bear the strong wince of commendation without the spiritual intoxication of pride. – William Jenkyn
