Okay, first I think that it is amazing how God worked through George Mueller, and I read 33% of the book. It really is pretty much his diary, and there are some good things that I read so far.

“A brother with small earnings may ask,''Should I also give? My earning are already so small that my family can barely make ends meet.'' My reply is, ''Have you ever considered that the very reason your earnings remain so small may be because you spend everything on yourself? If God gave you more, you would only use it to increase your own comfort instead of looking to see who is sick or who has no work at all that you might help them.”More quotes…
