“Worth Quoting 2”

“The Christian is the most contented man in the world, but he is the least contented with the world. He is like a traveler in an inn, perfectly satisfied with the inn and its accommodation, considering it as an inn, but putting quite out of all consideration the idea of making it his home.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Philipians 3:20
(ESV)

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:19-21 (ESV)

One thought on ““Worth Quoting 2”

  1. The late, great, much lamented Rich Mullins addresses this matter in his (inspirational) song “One Thing”

    Everybody I know says they need just one thing
    And what they really mean is that they need just one thing more…
    … Who have I in Heaven but You Jesus?
    And what better could I hope to find down here on earth?
    I could cross the most distant reaches
    Of this world, but I’d just be wasting my time
    ‘Cause I’m certain already, I’m sure I’d find
    You’re my one thing….

    His inpspiration, in turn, comes from Psa 73:25-28. Go on, look it up. And if you want to read the rest of the lyrics, go to
