Quote of the Day #168 - William Gurnall


A quote from William Gurnall on joy that endures:
How we would ridicule the man who, when the sun shines in at his window, tries to trap the sunbeams indoors by closing the shutters. But we are just as foolish to take our present joy, then turn away from God's presence, supposing that we have all we need. You can feel the heat from the sun only when you stand beneath its rays; you can feel God's comfort only as you keep your face turned toward Him.
~William Gurnall (The Christian In Complete Armor Volume One, Chapter 3, Part 2)
