  Charles H. Spurgeon was criticized relentlessly in his beginnings. But his personal influence was very great and his genuine love for souls and his earnest piety is apparent in all his work. He built his great Metropolitan Tabernacle, personally collecting the funds for it. The same is true of his college and orphanage. He has written many books, edited a magazine, besides publishing more sermons than any living preacher, which are scattered in palace and cottage. It may encourage some of us to hear this wonderful man say, "The bane of my life is to keep myself steady at work. I often get discouraged, and think I should have done better at something else."
