Better to...

Better to have a Christian's days of sorrow,
than a worldling's days of mirth.

Better to have a Christian's sorrows,
than a worldling's joys.

Ah! happier to be chained in a dungeon with a Paul,
than reign in the palace with an Ahab.

Better to be a child of God in poverty,
than a child of Satan in riches.

-Charles Spurgeon-

Spurgeon had a rare gift of making the profound sound incredibly simple.

I can say a hardy AMEN to each of those statements.
