Love and happiness

“To love God wholeheartedly, we must be convinced that our only happiness is in Him alone.  We cannot believe this until we renounce all other efforts at happiness.  If we look to God to supply half our happiness, we can only love Him with half our hearts.”


Source: William Law ‘A Practical Treatise Upon Christian Perfection’ (1726)

“A true love of God must begin with a delight in his holiness, and not with a delight in any other attribute; for no other attribute is truly lovely without this.”

Source: Jonathon Edwards ‘A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections.’ (1746)


“We are called to an everlasting preoccupation with God.”
