Enquirers: Not to Be Discouraged
Spurgeon's Illustration Collection
At the Synod of Moscow, held by King Goutran, A.D. 585, bishops were forbidden to keep dogs in their houses, or birds of prey, lest the poor should be bit by these animals instead of being fed.

Sunday-school teachers may also take the hint.
