Quote of the Day #226 - Richard Sibbes

A quote from Richard Sibbes:
God is glorified in making us happy, and we enjoying happiness, must glorify God... A heavenly soul is never satisfied, until it be as near God as is attainable. And the nearer a creature comes to God, the more it is emptied of itself, and all self-aims. Our happiness is more in him, than in ourselves. We seek ourselves most when we deny ourselves most. And the more we labour to advance God, the more we advance our condition in him.
~Richard Sibbes (The Soul's Conflict and Victory Over Itself By Faith, Chapter XXVI)
