On Godliness

“Godliness is a work of the greatest moment, and calls for our utmost effort. The greatest folly of man is seen when he is busy about nothing…Godliness, of all man’s work, is of the greatest importance, and the one thing truly necessary. Earthly business, honors, pleasures, or whatsoever, are but trifles and baubles compared to this…This work is like Goliath’s sword, there is none like it. It is soul-work, God-work, and eternal-work…Let Godliness sink deep into our affections and command all our actions. The affairs of time are trifles to the affairs of eternity.”

George Swinnock, Works, Vol 1 (Quoted from Voices from the Past, Nov 2)
