Yet again here is another quote that really stuck out to me as I was reading the other day. It’s about the passing things of this world, and our tendancy to cling to them over our eternal Father. A great way to think about it and put things in proper perspective.

“For the hurt lies not in this — that these pleasures are false like the deceptions of magic, for such they are not; …nor yet in this — that they pass away and leave a fierce disappointment behind; that is only so much the better; but the hurt lies in this — that the immortal, the infinite, created in the image of the everlasting God, is housed with the fading and the corrupting, and clings to them as its good — clings to them till it is infected and interpenetrated with their proper diseases, which assume in it a form more terrible in proportion to the superiority of its kind.”

–George MacDonald
