Another Quote

My family has a set of mugs that have a picture of a theologian on one side and a quote by them on the other. I’ve read these quotes before but I’ve never really thought about them. Yesterday while I was enjoying some hot chocolate with my little sister I read the back of my mug:

“The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accomodations here.”

–Jonathan Edwards

I was immediately convicted. I realized that I had been putting my trust in other things thinking they would satisfy me and bring me happiness. Only God can give me satisfaction. I must look to him! Praise God for his grace to do it! All of this from having a mug of hot chocolate. Maybe I should drink it more often…
