Mueller’s Mornings

Here’s a great and influential quote by George Mueller, a pastor in the 1800’s who ran several orphanages and looked after thousands of orphans and never once asked for support. He trusted God for every financial need and he and the orphans never went without…

“Above all things, see to it that your souls are happy in the Lord…the secret of all true effectual service is joy in God…in what way shall we attain this settled happiness of soul?…This happiness is to be attained through the study of the Holy Scriptures. God has therein revealed Himself unto us in the face of Jesus Christ. In the Scriptures, by the power of the Holy Ghost, He makes Himself known unto our souls. Therefore, the very earliest portion of the day we can command should be devoted to the meditation on Scriptures. Our souls should feed upon the Word. This intimate, experimental acquaintance with Him will make us truly happy. Nothing else will…”

  1. Ever notice that old time preachers focused on helping the community while 20/21st century mainstream pastors focus on helping themselves to the tithe and offering to outfit their big houses and foreign cars? The focus has shifted so much that now they actually just go on TV and beg for money saying that God will give you “100 fold” if you pay our milllion dollar TV budget… so sad!

    Thanks for being a true pastor, Rabbi, the mainstream make me sick! -Dave

  2. I know, very sad…these words ring in my ears often:
    “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.”
    James 3:1
