Men as well as children, may be
pleased with trifles!
Men as well as children, may be pleased
with trifles. However one object may drive out
another — it is but an exchange of trifles.
A believing view of the land that is far off, where the King reigns
in His beauty — will wean our affections from the trifles of this world!
Nothing can turn out the love of the world, but the love of God shed
abroad in the heart. Wherever the love of God is so shed abroad in
the heart as to become the ruling principle — there the world loses
its hold. The light of His glory, as it shines in the face of Jesus
Christ — casts shame and disgrace on all worldly vanities!
