Beware of Picking and Choosing

“Your Words were found, and I did eat them; and Your Word was unto me the joy  
and rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of Hosts.”
(Jeremiah 15:16 KJV)

Beware of picking and choosing in God’s word. It is a very dangerous symptom when there is any portion of Scripture that we are afraid to read. If there is one single chapter in the Book that I do not like, it must be because I feel it accuses and condemns me, and my duty ought to be to face that chapter at once and answer its accusation, and endeavor as far as possible to purify myself by God’s help from that which the passage of Scripture condemns. Brethren, read that passage most which stings you most.

(excerpted from a sermon by Charles H. Spurgeon on Jeremiah 15:16, titled “The Secret Food and the Public Name”)
