Rich in Assurance

“Assurance should be an antidote to trouble. What though there be but little oil in the cruse, thou art rich in assurance. How sweetly doth the bird sing that knows not where to pick up the next crumb ! and shall they be discontented who have God’s Word to assure them of daily bread, and his love to assure them of heaven ?”

– Thomas Watson, from Puritan Gems, or Wise and Holy Sayings of the Rev. Thomas Watson
