..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

When my body is pained, it is not wrong to wish for relief. When

overtaken by sickness, it is not wrong to send for the physician.

You may call this selfishness, which He who made us what we are,

and who gave us these instincts, expects us to act upon; and in

acting on which, we may count upon his blessing, not his rebuke. It

is not wrong to dread hell, to desire heaven, to flee from

torments, to long for blessedness, to shun condemnation, and to

desire pardon.

- Horatius Bonar
