Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

September 3, 2010 (resigns some pleasures)

resigns some pleasures

“[This desire for happiness is] insuperable,…
never can be changed…never can be overcome,
or in any way abated.
Young and old love happiness alike,
and good and bad, wise and unwise.
- Jonathan Edwards

“They certainly are the wisest men
that do those things
that make the most for their happiness,
and this in effect is acknowledged
by all men in the world,
for there is no man upon the earth
who isn’t earnestly seeking after happiness,
and it appears abundantly by the variety
of ways they so vigorously seek it.”
- Jonathan Edwards

“Let it not be imagined
that the life of a good Christian
must be a life of melancholy and gloominess;
for he only resigns some pleasures
to enjoy others infinitely better.”
- Blaise Pascal
