Given all that's going on in the world, this quote from Charles Spurgeon feels very appropriate:
"May it never be said of any of us, 'Well, he may be somewhat a Christian, but he is far more a clever money-getting tradesman,' I would not have it said 'Well, he may be a believer in Christ, but he is a good deal more a politician,' 'Perhaps he is a Christian, but he is most at home when he is talking about science, farming, engineering, horses, mining, navigation, or pleasure-talking,' No, no, we will never know the fullness of the joy that Jesus brings to the soul unless, under the power of the Holy Spirit, we take the Lord our Master to be our all in all, and make him the fountain of our delight! 'He is my Savior, my Christ, and my Lord.' Let this be our loudest boast."
Charles Spurgeon died in 1892 - replace "science, farming, engineering" with "hunting, fishing, shopping, sports, or news." What do you spend most of your time talking about? All of those things are okay in their place, but Christ should be at the forefront of all we do. Let his mercy, grace, and goodness be our loudest boast!
