6th February


I shall confine myself to giving you only one piece of advice, and that is to make a habit of reading the New Testament, particularly the words of our Lord Jesus Christ himself, which have sweetness and infinite power. They are adapted to both the learned and the unlearned; they have a heavenly savour, offer divine nourishment, and contain perfect truth, where no merely human thoughts enter; and they embody inexhaustible wisdom. The actual words of Jesus Christ: here is food suitable for you, and indeed adapted to all of us. The parts of the New Testament other than the Gospels serve to make us understand better the words of Christ.
