One ounce of Christ's love!
From Spurgeon's sermon, "Early and Late"
There is more hallowed mirth enjoyed in secret with the Lord
Jesus Christ, than in all the merriment the world can yield.
One ounce of Christ's love is better
than a ton of the 'world's flatteries'.
The world offers bubbles with fair hues,
bright to look upon, but vanishing at a breath.
But Christ gives real treasure, enduring as eternity.
The world's gold is all base money;
it glitters, but it is not precious.
There may be less glitter about the things of God,
but there is a 'solid joy and lasting pleasure,'
which 'none but Zion's children know.'
