THE BAUBLES AND THE BUBBLES OF THIS WORLD
Spurgeon, "The Unsearchable Riches of Christ" #745.
How amazingly foolish, must those be who will not
have Christ when he is to be had for the asking!
They prefer THE BAUBLES AND THE BUBBLES OF
THIS WORLD, and let the solid gold of eternity go by!
O fools, to play with shadows and miss the substance!
You dig and toil, and cover your faces with sweat, and
lose your nightly rest, to get this world's fleeting good,
while you neglect him who is the eternal good!
O fools and slow of heart, to court THIS HARLOT
WORLD, with her painted face, when the beauties
of my Master are infinitely more rich and rare!
Oh! if you did but know him, if you could but see his
unspeakable riches, you would fling YOUR TOYS to the
wind, and follow after him with all your heart and soul.
