Be Alarmed

If you find yourself loving any pleasure more than your prayers, 
any book better than the Bible, 
any house better than the house of the Lord,
any table better than the Lord's table,
any persons better than Christ, 
or any indulgence better than the hope of heaven--

be alarmed.

-Thomas Guthrie

Hat tip to Mrs. Pamela Leding
(this is Miss Jen's mom and we will feature an interview 
with her in the near future!)

Very wise words. Thank you so much for sharing this, look forward to her interview, her daughter's blog is always a delight to visit.

Wonderful reminders to our souls who are prone to wander.

Do you know in which book can I find these words?

Thank you,

Mrs. P. said...

Wow! That's basically a checklist one can use to determine if anything in their life is an idol. Thank you so much for sharing that.

Wow... this pretty much says it all doesn't it?

Such a good jolting quote to stop and think about.
Thank you.

I needed this today. Really dug deep in me. Lately I have found myself to be more concerned with the external rather than the internal. Thanks for this reminder.
