Hectic Week? There Is One Who Can Keep Us From Falling

“And then, you know, it is the pace that makes some people stumble. See the pace we have to go at now. When I think of our dear old fathers in the country, I almost envy their quiet lives; not up too early, and seldom going to bed very late; not much to do, leading very steady sort of lives. They traveled by broad-wheeled wagons, and we fly over the ground by
express trains, and need to go twice as quickly as we can; and all the while we have so much to do. And, then, it is not only the pace, dear friends, but it is the loads that some of you have to carry. Oh, the weights that are piled upon some of God’s people in their business! Only God can keep an overloaded heart from stumbling, and the ways are very rough just now. You hardly meet anybody in trade who does not say, “Ah, we have a rough bit of ground to travel over now; stones in plenty, and no steam roller!” But there is One who is able to keep you from falling.” -Charles Spurgeon in his sermon “Saints Guarded from Stumbling”
