Excerpt from At the Threshold: Familiar Talks With Young Christians Concerning Doctrines and Duties
One Is sure to miss the meaning of all that he is, and all that he sees, unless with a teachable Spirit he permits the Divine Guide to lead him to the one stand-point whence God's real purpose in our creation may be discovered, and the glory of his design may be comprehended. Standing here, there is no more mystery; no more confusion; no more disappointment. Every thing has a complete and satisfactory meaning. All is light, and harmony, and beauty.
Young Christian! You have now, for the first time, gained that focal point of correct observation the stand-point of Christian faith. With all my heart I Wish you joy, and bid you Godspeed; for now you have really begun to live, now you have really begun to learn. You feel your ignorance, you realize your inexperience in spiritual things; but you have chosen a skillful teacher - a safe counselor.
You can never make any serious mistakes so long as you practically heed the instruction: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
