Activity -- essential to purity

for September 1

Look at a pool of water when it stands still -- it is mantled over with weed, stagnant and defiled!

Give it vent, and let it run down yonder brook among the stones; leaping in little cascades on its way down to the river. It is alive now, and see how pure it grows, refining as it flows, because of its motion and life.

So it must let be with us; holy activity and progress are essential to purity.

[From the original Spurgeon Birthday Book published by Passmore & Alabaster, London.]
