What is the object of your love?

“The most ravishing pleasures, the most solid and substantial delights that human nature is capable of, are those which arise from the endearments of a well-placed and successful affection.

And when the pleasures of a “well-placed” affection are unsurpassed, it’s excellency is revealed. For the excellency of a soul is to be measured by the object of its love.

Without doubt, for human beings the affection of love is “well-placed” when placed in God.”

– John Piper (ThePleasuresOfGod)

– Moriah Renata

      • Me too. I try to not let it bother me, but it usually does. George MacDonald (a fiction author I read) does the same thing. Makes me want to go in with a pen and fix them all – but that would take forever! 🙂
