Edwards Quote

"What makes men partial in religion is that they seek themselves, and not God, in their religion." Jonathan Edwards, The Religious Affections pg. 316

That's what we do. We seek ourselves, not only in religion, in nearly everything. We are a self-centered lot.

All the more reason to rejoice in the mercy and grace of God. He is so long suffering with his stubborn and stiff-necked children. (Oh that I could be too.)

Great and timely words Jon. I enjoy "under the steeple" and I really enjoy Famous Daves when I can get it.
Love ya Bro,
