Spurgeon: Faith has clearer optics to behold things as they really are


    Trust in the LORD, and do good;
        dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Psalm 37:3 ESV

C.H. Spurgeon:

Glasses on Open BibleTrust in the Lord.  Faith cures fretting. Sight is cross-eyed, and views things only as they seem, hence her envy: faith has clearer optics to behold things as they really are, hence her peace.

And do good. True faith is actively obedient. Doing good is a fine remedy for fretting. There is a joy in holy activity which drives away the rust of discontent.

  1. When I initially commented I clickd the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each tine a
    comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

  2. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
