QUENCHING THE SPIRIT

What quenches the Spirit? Every vain thought and idle word, and every wicked deed, is like so many drops to quench the Spirit.

Some quench it with the lust of the flesh; others with cares of the mind and some quench it with long delays, that is --- not plying the motion when it cometh, but crossing the good thoughts with bad thoughts, and doing a thing when the Spirit saith not.

The Spirit is often grieved before it can be quenched.
