Spiritual Paint Thinner

Sharing Options

“If I turn every gift that God gives over in my hands suspiciously, looking for the idol trap, then I am not rejoicing before Him the way I ought to be . . . This world competes with the eternal things, and so what we think we must do is get a five-gallon bucket of dour paint thinner and pour it over all our material possessions. We try to make Heaven thick by making earth thin.”

Chestertonian Calvinism, pp. 48-49
