The New Zealand Evangelist

[Christian proverbs]

Divine Help.—The less men help God's people, and the more they hinder them in carrying on His work, the more efficiently will they be helped and prospered by God himself.—Scott.

Greatness.—Modesty, prudence, and courage, is a mixture that seldom meets together, but is absolutely necessary to make a truly great man; who never appears so great as when he treats insolent men with humility, and angry men with meekness.—Patrick.

Prayer.—Why should not men pray? Why should not families pray? Are we not dependent creatures? Has not God made asking the indispensable condition of receiving? The man who will not pray, is a madman. The family which will not pray, are lunatics.—Dwight.
