Sabbath a'Brakel: A Christian's Character

Take to heart what manner of person you are before God and what will befall you due to this.
(1) Do you have such an even-tempered and stable disposition of heart when people maltreat you in word and deed?
(2) Or do you have a cross, fretful, and irritable nature? Do you have as many spines as a porcupine does, or are you as prickly as a bush of thorns, so that one cannot be in your presence without being pricked? (IV: 84-85).

Myself. I have been such a 'prick'ley of late. Maybe I have some conformity to the image of Christ to do.

Hello Mr. Eshelman,

I do not know why I haven't posted before, but I will muse on that later. I thought you might be interested in this websight:

There are some posts on the Sabbath from an evangelical perspective.
