Finney for a Thursday

“How many times have I had occasion to rebuke the unforgiving spirit! Often while in a place, laboring to promote a revival, I have seen the workings of this jealous, unforgiving spirit, and I have felt like saying, Take these things hence! Why do you get up a prayer meeting and think to pray to God when you know that you hate your brother, and know moreover that I know you do? Away with it! Let such professed Christians repent, break down get into the dust at the feet of God and men before they think to pray acceptably! Until they do thus repent all their prayers are only a 'smoke in the nose' before God.”—Charles Finney
