Meditation does discriminate and characterize a man.  By this, he may take a measure of his heart, whether it be good or bad.  Let me allude to that: “For, as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23.7).  As the meditation is, such is the man.  Meditation is the touchstone of a Christian.  It shows what metal he is made of.  It is a spiritual index: as the index shows what is in the book, so meditation shows what is in the heart. – Thomas Watson (1620-1686)
