"I speak advisedly, as one who has known the blessedness of thus reading the word for the last forty-six years ... it is not enough to have prayerful reading only, but we must also meditate on the word ... pondering over what I have read. This is deeply important. If you merely read the Bible, and no more, it is just like water running in at one side and out at the other. In order to be really benefited by it, we must meditate on it."
George Muller, 1875 at Mildmay conference , London
"The mill of meditation mull forth a mouthful manna for the man."
