Random Selections: Idle Hands (Charles Spurgeon)


This random selection (even page, second paragraph) is from Charles Spurgeon, preaching at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London.

Let us be afraid of having nothing to do, and be thankful for something to suffer, if we have nothing to do actively; for, let us alone, and the best of us will corrode. And if I am addressing any man who has lately given up business and is enjoying repose, I would urge upon him the wisdom of seeking some service for Christ which would engage his faculties, for it is true of Christians as well as other people, that,—

“Satan always mischief finds,
  For idle hands to do.”

—Charles Spurgeon, Spurgeon’s Expository Encyclopedia (Baker Book House, 1978), 14:460.
