Love God, Not the World – Thomas a Kempis

by | November 27, 2015

Call often to mind that proverb, “That the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing” (Ecclesiastes 1:8). Endeavor therefore to withdraw thy heart from the love of visible things, and to turn thyself to the invisible. For they that follow their sensuality, do stain their own consciences, and lose the favour of God.

– Thomas a Kempis –
from  The Imitation of Christ
