Quotable

From here and there in reading: 
 
 
“Modesty is the hedge of chastity, and therefore ought to be very carefully preserved and kept up by both sexes.”
 
Matthew Henry, Commentary on the Whole Bible, vol 1., commenting on Deut 25:11-12.
 
 
“Christians believe that worship is the highest and noblest activity of which man, by the grace of God, is capable.”
 
John Stott, Christ the Controversialist: A Study in Some Essentials of Evangelical Religion (London: Tyndale, 1970), 160. I picked up the quote in Philip Graham Ryken, “Introduction,” in Give Praise to God: A Vision for Reforming Worship (Phillipsburg, N.J.: P & R Publishing, 2003), 6.
 
 
 “As long as you notice, and have to count, the steps, you are not yet dancing but only learning to dance.  A good shoe is a shoe you don’t notice.  Good reading becomes possible when you need not consciously think about eyes, or light, or print, or spelling.  The perfect church service would be one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God.”
 
C. S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer (New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, 1963), 4.  I picked up the quote in Derek W. H. Thomas, “The Regulative Principle: Responding to Recent Criticism,” in Give Praise to God: A Vision for Reforming Worship (Phillipsburg, N.J.: P & R Publishing, 2003), 92.
