STOP AND THINK – We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about. (Charles Kingsley, 19th century Anglican priest and professor)
Has Kingsley rightly judged his fellow men? Is it true that people value comfort and luxury too highly and seem to be pursuing them as life’s most important goals? Whether or not his judgment is correct, what about the solution he offers? Is enthusiasm enough? Well, it is certain that we need to find something to seek after that is not just temporal and fleeting.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me. (Philippians 3:14)
