A Cause for Alarm!

"If you find yourself loving any pleasure better than praying, any book better than the Bible, any house better than the house of God, any table better than the Lord's table, any person better than Christ, any indulgence better than the hope of heaven--take alarm!"

-Thomas Guthrie (quoted in Overcoming the World by Beeke, p. 37)

*You also should be alarmed if the above quote does not alarm you.

Whoa! Thank you for sharing this! This is a strong statement, and it is a real alarm for us to think about our heart and what is our value. We all need to put Christ first above everything else in this world and treasure Him more than anything. I do need to remember this!
