Words of Wisdom

I remember reading a quote by John Brown, who, in a letter of paternalcounsels to one of his pupils newly ordained over a small congregation,wrote, "I know the vanity of your heart, and that you will feel mortifiedthat your congregation is very small, in comparison with those of yourbrethren around you; but assure yourself on the word of an old man,that when you come to give an account of them to the Lord Christ, athis judgment-seat, you will think you have had enough."
