The pathway to maturity and to solid biblical food is not first becoming an intelligent person, but becoming an obedient person. What you do with alcohol and sex and money and leisure and food and computers, and the way you treat other people, has more to do with your capacity for solid food than where you go to school or what books you read.
Piper, J. The Key to Spiritual Maturity
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 accommodations here. . . . [These] are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams; but God is the sun. These are but streams; but God is the ocean.
“Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.” Luke 6:27 (ESV)
God has become our all-satisfying treasure and so we don’t trust our adversaries out of our own sense of need and insecurity, but out of our own fullness with the satisfying glory of God.
