Quote of the Day #112 - Thomas Manton


A quote from Thomas Manton:
If because you are Christians you promise yourselves a long lease of temporal happiness, free from troubles and afflictions, it is as if a soldier going to the wars should promise himself peace and continual truce with the enemy; or as if a mariner committing himself to the sea for a long voyage, should promise himself nothing but fair and calm weather, without waves and storms; so irrational it is for a Christian to promise himself rest here upon earth.
~Thomas Manton (Sermon on Psalm 119:143)
