Men Generally Feel More Interested in the Earthly than the Heavenly Kingdom
Matthew 6:10
Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

It is very sad to see how excited and absorbed men can be about the politics of this world; how, on any subject of national interest, such as the progress of a war or the annexation of a territory, the pulse of the nation will beat fast with excitement; how, not only in the council-chambers of kings and the legislative assemblies of nations, but at every street-corner and in every little tavern, men will discuss the matter with eager interest; while it is almost impossible to gather a roomful of people to listen to the records of the gospel difficulties, or of the triumphs of the kingdom of Christ.

(F. C. Blythe, M. A.)
