For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword…
A dealer in low publications taunted me about the Bible. I begged her to take a copy and read it. She said, "I shall sell it." "That is your affair," I replied. I lost sight of her for three weeks. When I returned to her kiosk all her immoral publications had disappeared. "Oh!" she cried, on seeing me, "I am delivered; this book has saved me from dishonour. No, no, I will not sell it. I and my husband now read it together, and with the children." This morning this dear old woman told me that in two neighbouring families the Holy Bible is read, "And," says she, "it has absolutely had the same effect with them as with us."
