First Place

Here is another quote from "Holiness" ~
I have been thoroughly enjoying this book!

"Last, but not least, a holy man will follow after spiritual-mindedness.
He will endeavour to set his affections entirely on things above, 
and to hold things on earth with a very loose hand.

He will not neglect the business of the life that now is;
but the first place in his mind and thoughts 
will be given to the life to come.


He will aim to live like one whose treasure is in heaven,
and to pass through this world like a stranger
and a pilgrim travelling to his home."  

Quoted from "Holiness" by J. C. Ryle page 37

First I must say that your photo from your uncle is awesome!
What a beautiful quote you have shared with us, Camille, thank you.
I have always enjoyed looking into God's Word on the topic of holiness, it just resonates on my heart, for our Savior is worthy of our devotion to Him. May we always strive for a holy lifestyle that glorifies our Majestic God.
Beautiful, God honoring post.

Bless you~~
