A little is enough

John Brown (1722-1787), Scottish pastor and teacher, wrote in a letter to Alexander Waugh, one of his students:

"I know the vanity of your heart, and that you will feel mortified that your congregation is very small in comparison with those of your brethren around you; but assure yourself, on the word of an old man, that when you come to give an account of them to the Lord Christ, at His judgment-seat, you will think you have had enough."

-- From John Brown of Haddington, by Robert Mackenzie, BOT, 1964, p.150-151
