Sivu 25 - Where is the •Royal Duke, or popular Parliament-man, or place-holding nobleman, that has ever meddled with a movement or influenced a decision of the Bible Society ? or the individual among the Society's efficient labourers who has ever asked a favour, or found an avenue open to him for the prosecution of his private interest, through ties •held in that association ? The humble, and on earth humbly-requited services of the spiritual temple are left to those whose hearts affect these labours—...
Sivu 26 - Nay, do not think I flatter; For what advancement may I hope from thee, That no revenue hast but thy good spirits To feed and clothe thee? Why should the poor be flatter'd? No; let the candied tongue lick absurd pomp, And crook the pregnant hinges of the knee Where thrift may follow fawning.
Sivu 19 - The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance, and of my cup, Thou maintainest my lot : and, on the justest grounds, he immediately adds, The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places ; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
Sivu 13 - Instructor, and if they have any thing to spare, to show their detestation of the men they do not know, and of the affairs they do not understand, they send it north to swell the coffers and the pride of the Edinburgh Bible Society. But such contributions, like picturesque scenery on other men's estates, will do more to gratify the taste than to extend the resources of the Society, that has the benefit of them. — I would not, however, by any means say that all Scottish...
Sivu 13 - English abettors of Edinburgh principles? Let us see. There is not, I •will answer for it, a native Englishman among them. Poor ministers the chief of them, of small Scottish congregations, stationed on the wrong side of the border, who sigh in obsequious fondness after a church that has not cherished them with reciprocal attachment. Their highest conceptions of worldly glory and felicity do not surmount the dome of St George's — it would not do for them to slight what they conceive to be the...
Sivu 13 - But we are told that these views are gaining ground in the North of England, and that even from London some contributions have been received by the Edinburgh Society. And who are those English abettors of Edinburgh principles ? Let us see : there is not, I will answer for it, a native Englishman among them. Poor ministers the chief of •them, of small Scottish congregations, stationed on the wrong side of the -border, who sigh in obsequious fondness after a Church that has not cherished them with...
Sivu 13 - a parochial charge," with benefice of £150 per annum in some obscure glen, or on some dreary heath of their and Dr Thomson's " beloved country." Such individuals send their homage and mite to the Edinburgh Society. And of the tribe of needy adventurers who every year migrate to the genial South, there are hundreds whose rank does not entitle them to forget, as their betters for the most part do, their presbyterian education and early predilections, and whom sordid sentiments, vulgar manners, and...
Sivu 13 - Scottish ministers settled in the North of England, or that all poor laymen removing to London, are of this character; only that in most cases it is a spirit of prejudice and cynical discontent which leads men so situated to send money to Edinburgh, in preference to giving it where their more pious and christianly-affectioned neighbours give theirs. It is...
Sivu 13 - ... habits, preclude from the amiable circles of cultivated religious society. These do not for a long time change their sentiments or society with the scene of their existence. They continue to read and rail, for the sake of old times, with the Edinburgh Instructor, and if they have any thing to spare, to show their detestation of the men they do not know, and of the affairs they do not understand, they send it north to swell the coffers and the pride of the Edinburgh Bible Society. But such contributions,...
Sivu 26 - WE do right in speaking of this as a hard lesson. It is one of the hardest of all the many lessons we have to learn. It is a lesson so hard to learn that but few perfectly learn it. There is only one here and there who is able to say with the Apostle, " I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
