Be Hopeful

“Hopeful men bring gladness with them. Despondent spirits spread the infection of depression, and hence few are glad to see them, while those whose hopes are grounded upon God’s word carry sunshine in their faces, and are welcomed by their fellows. When professors by their freezing words chill all hearts, the godly avoid their company. May this never be our character !”

– Charles H. Spurgeon, from The Golden Alphabet, p. 164

  1. What a great quote. I am at times discouraged by the “dustiness” of Christianity, or at least by the dusty perception of it. Joy, love, kindness — these are indeed fruits of the Spirit!
