Rutherford: better than the world's best

Saturday, October 22, 2022
    But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
    —Philippians 3:7 (NIV)
    The worst of Christ, even his chaff, is better than the world’s corn.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, Feb. 23, 1637, p. 197 (see the book)
    See also Phil. 3:7-8; Matt. 16:26; John 15:18-19; Acts 20:24; Rom. 8:18; 1 Cor. 4:10; Jas. 4:4; 1 John 2:15-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach me not to love the things of the world.
