The Root

"We can see the branches of a tree without labour; but to behold the root requires labour and digging; so teh fruit of sin is manifest, the root lieth hid."

Paul Bayne (d. 1617)

Need for God's Work

"What threshing will make me fly out of my husk? Even as Lot was forcibly drawn out of Sodom: so for his mercies must my God pluck me out of my natural corruption."

Paul Bayne (d. 1617)

A Tender Conscience

"A strait shoe maketh us feel a little stone; so a strait conscience a small sin. They that will not mend a gutter must amend a whole house."

Paul Bayne (d. 1617)
