Eddie,

The great tragedy of idolatry is that idols are masters who promise us much, and give us nothing.

Eddie,

If we balk at the idea of singleness being a gift, it is not because God has not understood us but because we have not understood Him.

Eddie,

Difficulty opens our eyes to pleasures we had taken for granted.

Eddie,

You cannot destroy love for the world merely by showing its emptiness. The world-centred love of our hearts can be expelled only by a new love and affection – for God and from God.

Eddie,

If he who feels the world is too much for him will make for himself a little space, and let his mind settle like a bee in a flower on some great word of his God, and brood over it, pondering it till it has time to work in him, he will find himself in the greenwood.

Eddie,

Think back to the last time you disobeyed Jesus.

At that point, what were you serving instead? What were you looking to to provide joy, satisfaction, comfort or security?

Eddie,

The fact is, both singleness and marriage have their own particular ups and downs. The temptation for many who are single is to compare the downs of singleness with the ups of marriage. And the temptation for some married people is to compare the downs of marriage with the ups of singleness, which is equally dangerous.

Eddie,

The genius of the divine way of salvation by faith is that in it we are personally, actively united to Jesus Christ, but in a way that contributes nothing to His work. Faith is by definition non-contributory; it is the reception of Christ, not an addition to His finished work.

Eddie,

Often our flash of haste means little. To read a book in an hour (if the book has taken half a life-time to write) means nothing at all. To pray in a hurry of spirit means nothing. To live in a hurry means to do much but effect little. We build more quickly in wood, hay, and stubble than in gold, silver, precious stones; but the one abides, the other does not.
