I have learned over many years to keep a balance of sorts on the quotes I use and often memorize. Here’s a quote from D.L. Moody that helps to balance the regimen:
“The Christian on his knees sees more than the philosopher on tiptoe.” D. L. Moody
Now there’s a statement worth quoting!
Many fine, flowery and inspiring things were and are said by mere humans that give decent advice on the present journey, but these statements, obscured by their view of eternity, are lacking in words of eternal wisdom.
Most philosophers labor under the delusion of the perfectibility of fallen man and thus enter a dream world of man that ceased to exist the moment Adam accepted the forbidden fruit from the angelic hand of Eve.
Due to the fall of the race in the genes of its progenitor, dreams and aspirations are flawed, as evidenced here, 1 Corinthians 15:22, “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
The entrance into the linage of the Christ Line is called the New Birth, so aptly set forth in John 3:1-21 among others.
Moody had it right when he taught that the humble see beauties of which the arrogant cannot dream.
