Extract from a letter by A. W. Pink to his friend, William Naismith, no date:
While it is nice to have our problems solved and difficulties removed by others, it is not always best for us. Instead of continuing to answer your questions, I feel I might be of more service if I put you in the way of answering them for yourself. That man is the greatest help to me who most casts me back upon God and stimulates me to the study of his Word. ‘Study,’ I say, for while there are many who read it daily, and use the concordance, scarcely any study it.
