On Not Bearing False Witness Against Ourselves -Richard Sibbes-

“We must beware of false reasonings, such as: because our fire does not blaze out as others, therefore we have not fire at all. By false conclusions we may come to sin against the commandment in bearing false witness against ourselves. The prodigal would not say he was not a son, but that he was not worthy to be called son (Luke 15:19).”

Richard Sibbes, The Bruised Reed
