Glued to the world

Glued to the world


"God disciplines us for our good, that we may
 share in his holiness." Hebrews
12:10 (NIV)

It is common to complain of the troubles of life; yet
they are kindly designed to loosen our affections from
the world. If our life were all clear sunshine, without
care or confusion, jar or contention, disappointment
or pain--how would we be glued to the world, and
cemented to the things of time--since amidst all the
disasters which occur, we are still so attached to the
transitory things!

 

 


James Meikle, "A Periodic Interview
with the King of Terrors" May 1, 1771
