Earth Worm!

(Jonathan Edwards, "The Justice of God")

What covetousness has been in many of you!

Such has been your inordinate love of the
world, and care about the things of it, that
it has taken up your heart.

For the vanities of the world you have
allowed no room for God; you have minded
the world more than your eternal salvation.

For the vanities of the world you have
neglected reading, praying and meditation.

For the vanities of the world you have cast
God, and Christ, and heaven, behind your back.

For the vanities of the world you have
sold your own soul.

You have as it were drowned your soul in
worldly cares and desires; you have been
a mere earth worm, that is never in its
element but when groveling and buried
in the earth!
