Willing to be Weak

Chad Haygood

Richard Sibbes, who Garrett mentioned in his sermon a couple of weeks ago, was a 16th and 17th century pastor and theologian. In perhaps his most famous work, The Bruised Reed, he said these words:

As a monther tendereth most the most diseased and weakest child, so doth Christ most mercifully incline to the weakest, and likewise putteth an instinct into the weakest things to rely upon something stronger than themselves for support.
