“Get good books” by Thomas Watson

Good thoughts from Puritan Thomas Watson posted by a fellow blogger and good book lover at “Tolle Lege”. May you gather good books that may be a well of water to your soul.

Tolle Lege

“Get good books in your houses. When you have not the spring near to you, then get water into your cistern; so when you have not that wholesome preaching that you desire, good books are cisterns that hold the waters of life in them to refresh you.

When David’s natural heat was taken away, they covered him with warm clothes (1 Kings 1:1); so when you find a chillness upon your souls and your former heat begins to abate, ply yourselves with warm clothes, get those good books that may acquaint you with such truths as may warm and affect your hearts.”

–Thomas Watson, “Parting Counsels” in Sermons of the Great Ejection (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1662/2012), 166.
