    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Asleep On Duty

From a sermon by Charles H. Spurgeon:

I should not expect if I were a member of a commercial firm, to take half the profits, and to do none of the work. It is low to the very last degree to share the ‘benefits’ without uniting in the ‘toil’. And yet some Christian professors are guilty of this miserable conduct.

As it was in the days of Job, so it is even until now – “the OXEN were ‘ploughing’, and the DONKEYS were ‘feeding’ beside them.” There is always a large proportion of the latter class in the Churches, too glad to feed, but quite unwilling to work. (“What Meanest Thou, O Sleeper?”)
