Quote of the Day: Charles Spurgeon

Here's another gem from the Prince of Preachers, Charles Spurgeon.

He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. ~Proverbs 28:13

Here is the way of mercy for a guilty and repenting sinner. He must cease from the habit of covering sin.
This is attempted
  • by falsehood, which denies sin;
  • by hypocrisy, which conceals it;
  • by boasting, which justifies it;
  • and by loud profession, which tries to make amends for it.
The sinner's business is to confess and forsake. The two must go together.
