Just a thought to share...

Yesterday while doing some reading I came across this statement from the Scottish preacher Thomas Guthrie and though I would share it with you: "If you find yourself loving any pleasure better than your prayers, any book better than the Bible, any house better than the house of God, any table better than the Lord's table, any persons better than Christ, any indugence better than the hope of heaven - take alarm." There are many Christians today (myself included) who should be taking alarm. When we are so occupied with things that we have no time or desire to pray, when we would rather sit by a nice warm fire and entertain ourself with the latest New York "Best Seller" rather than the Word of God, when we would rather be at the "House that Ruth built" (ball park, football stadium, etc.) rather than church, when we would rather feast at the table of the knowledge of the world rather than the table of the Lord, when we take our spiritual guidance from watching Oprah Winfrey rather than spending time with Jesus, or we find more pleasure in the hope of bagging a twelve-point buck than the hope of heaven, we need to take alarm.
