QOTD - and then there's the one about the sparrow

"By perserverance the snail reached the ark." CH Spurgeon, 19th century British preacher
Spurgeon's snail isn't about pererverance. Aesop's tortise is about perserverance. 

Spurgeon's snail is about faith.For this quote to mean anything to you, you have to believe in Noah and the Ark. Otherwise, where is the snail going? And why is it so important and/or wonderful that it got there?

Faith can't be forced, and you don't catch it off a calendar. You either have it or you don't. Me, I don't. And exhorting me to it only pushes all my contrary buttons.
