Excerpt from The Creation-Story of Genesis I: A Sumerian Theogony and Cosmogony
HE Right Rev. D. S. Tuttle. Bishop of Missouri, in delivering a sermon be fore a body of theological students on How to make the people contribute liberally towards the support of the Church. Remarked; You must milk the cows! The more and the Oftener you milk them, the more milk they will give. Although somewhat vulgar, yet the simile fits the case exactly. The same is true of the study of the Bible. The more we study it. The more we draw from it. The more it will yield: milk of life, - both for the soul and the brain! The same idea was also expressed by Dr. Martin Luther who compared the Bible to a beautiful and fruitful tree. The more and the oftener we pluck its fruit, the more it will give us.
