Whatever we have over-loved


(John Flavel)

Whatever we have over-loved, idolized, and leaned upon–God has from time to time broken it, and made us to see the vanity of it. We find that the readiest course to be rid of our comforts–is to set our hearts inordinately upon them!

“Anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me, is not worthy of Me;
anyone who loves his son or daughter more than Me, is not worthy of Me;
and anyone who does not take his cross and follow Me, is not worthy of Me!”
Matthew 10:37-38
