Men as well as children, may be pleased with trifles!

(John Newton)

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!
