The Picture of A Godly Man

Have you ever been convicted by a “table of contents” page?

The first time that I opened Thomas Watson’s The Godly Man’s Picture, I was challenged about my own heart and life in relation to Christ and reflecting His character. Check out the way that Watson describes the characteristics of a godly man in his chapter headings. They are worth reflecting upon and asking God to instill such gracious traits into our lives.

A Man who serves God not Men
