God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,…
The other day, on one of the London streets, I saw a contrivance to judge a man's strength by the power of his breath. You breathe into the machine, and by the weight you lift will be accurately estimated the power of your lungs. And Jesus Christ keeps the stars floating by the power of His breath just as children keep bubbles on a summer eve; He breathes and the planets swim as feathers in a breeze.
(J. C. Jones, D. D.)
