For I would that you knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea…
"This morning," says Mr. Fuller, "I have read another of Edwards' sermons, on 'God, the Christian's Portion,' from Psalm 73:25. The latter part comes very close, and I feel myself at a loss what to judge as to God's being my chief good. He asks, whether we had rather live in this world rich and without God, or poor and with Him? Perhaps I should not be so much at a loss to decide this question as another; namely, had I rather be rich in this world and enjoy but little of God, or poor and enjoy much of God? I am confident the practice of great numbers of professing Christians declares that they prefer the former; and in some instances I feel guilty of the same thing."
