Quote of the Day

"In our prosperity we love earthly blessings and dote upon things in this world as if our happiness and comfort were bound up in them. In the day of adversity God convinces us of our mistake, and causes us to see the emptiness of this material world...We can see in affliction that the world is not what it seems, not what it promises, and not what we expected and flattered ourselves with...
If we fill ourselves with the world, the less we will delight in Christ. This is our sin and our folly. But when God spreads sackcloth on the earthly, we discover the beauty of Christ and can taste His sweetness."
                       - Thomas Case in Voices From the Past
