The Blessings of Solitude

“There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labour in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them.”[i] —Charles H. Spurgeon, nineteenth-century English preacher and theologian
