Glued To The World - james Meikle
"God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness." Hebrews 12:10 (NIV)
It is common to complain of the troubles of life; yet they are kindly designed to loosen our affections from the world. If our life were all clear sunshine, without care or confusion, jar or contention, disappointment or pain--how would we be glued to the world, and cemented to the things of time--since amidst all the disasters which occur, we are still so attached to the transitory things!
