Sabbath Keeping

"Sow for yourselves righteousness;
Reap in mercy;
Break up your fallow ground,
For it is time to seek the Lord,
Till He comes and rains righteousness on you."
~ Hosea 10:12 ~


"Children are innocent and love justice, 
while most adults are wicked and prefer mercy."
~ G. K. Chesterton ~


"The quality of mercy is not strained, 
it droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath, 
it is twice blessed - 
it blesseth him that gives and him that takes." 
~ Shakespeare ~


"Fire, water and government know nothing of mercy."
 ~ unknown

"I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice."
~ Abraham Lincoln ~

"All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word:
 freedom, justice, honor; duty, mercy, hope."
~ Winston Churchill ~

"Sin is the dare of God's justice, the rape of His mercy, the jeer of His patience, the slight of His power and the contempt of His love." ~ John Bunyan ~


"For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."
~ Romans 9:15 ~

  1. Thanks for some thought-provoking quotes. I don't remember ever seeing the Chesterton one about children -- very telling -- and the Bunyan quote is convicting!

  3. We are always, somehow or other, on the wrong day for Sabbath Keeping but trust that it matters not at all.

    We are so grateful to you, Sandra, for including us on your prayer list. Thank you.
