Sibbes on love

Another quote from Richard Sibbes (via Mike Reeves):

Where love is, there it enlargeth the heart, which being enlarged, enlargeth the tongue also. The church hath never enough of commending Christ, and of setting out his praise. The tongue is loosed, because the heart is loosed. Love will alter a man’s disposition.

Sibbes features in Mike Reeves’s excellent book, The Good God (UK title) or Delighting in the Trinity (US title). Mike has also written three other books looking at lessons from historical figures. The Unquenchable Flame is available here from and Breeze of the Centuries is available here from and And On Giants’ Shoulders is available here from and
