Fri.-Sabbath, 5/22-24/15 Devotion

Wahoo—it is almost Sunday! We *get* to go to church! Here is Thomas Wat-son, from his book, entitled, "All Things for Good":

"We must love God above all other objects. 'There is nothing on earth that I desire beside You,' (Psalm 73:25). God is the quintessence of all good things; He is superlatively good. The soul seeing a super-eminency in God, and ad-miring in Him that constellation of all excellencies, is carried out in love to Him in the highest degree.

"The measure of our love to God, says Bernard, must be to love Him without measure. God, who is the chief of our happiness, must have the chief of our affections. The creature may have the milk of our love, but God must have the cream. Love to God must be above all other things, as the oil swims above the water."
