A missionary, who had been much used of God in China, was once asked how he read the Bible. He replied, ‘I take plenty of potatoes every day, and a little meat.’ When asked to explain his remark he said, ‘I read many pages of the Bible every day – that is like potatoes – it is filling; but I meditate on one or two verses every day – that is the meat, that is the nourishment’ – and that is a very good balanced diet!
