If We Did But Love God…

Rembrandt_The_Parable_of_the_Rich_Man_1627_Oil_on_Panel

Lord, as formerly I lived without Thee in the world, so now let me live without the world in Thee. If we did but love God as well as a worldly man doth love his wealth and riches, we should be so taken up with the love of God as quite to forget the world; for the world makes them forget God, that He is not always in their thoughts. Yea, we should be taken up always with God.
