Quote of the Week

"There is a keen test of character in prosperity. Everybody longs for it, but it is not every man that can bear it when it comes. True faith forbids our setting great store by worldly goods and pleasures and enjoyments, for it teaches us that our treasure is in heaven."

C.H. Spurgeon, Everyday Religion (sermon #1599)

i second that - Amen!

Whether I have it or it is within sight, prosperity can certainly divert my attention away from the true treasure in heaven.
