The trifles which God gives

(Thomas Brooks, "Heaven on Earth" 1667)

The emperor Augustus, in his great feasts,
gave trifles to some--but gold to others.

Just so--honors, riches and worldly pleasures are
the trifles which God gives to the worst of men.

God gives His gold--His special love and grace--only
to His people.
