Please tell me if I ever…

Spurgeon on Proverbs 28:24…”There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”

Deception is not confined to the tradesman’s shop. It prevails throughout society; the sanctuary is not exempt. The preacher adopts a sham voice. You hardly ever hear a man speak in the pulpit the same way he would speak in the parlor. Why, I hear my brethren, sometimes, when they are at tea or dinner, speak in a very comfortable sort of English voice, but when they get into their pulpits they adopt a sanctimonious tone, and fill their mouths with inflated utterance, or else whine most pitifully. They degrade the pulpit by pretending to honor it; speaking in a voice which God never intended any mortal to have.

    Ok, dear Pastor, but I can’t imagine it. Your humility and sincerity are just two of the many things our family loves about you.
