Faith advances the soul to higher projects than to seek the things of this life.  It discovers a world beyond the moon – and there lies faith’s merchandise – leaving the colliers of this world to load themselves with clay and coals while it trades for grace and glory.  Faith fetches its riches from on far.  Saul did not more willingly leave seeking his father’s asses when he heard of a kingdom than the believing soul proling for the earth now it hears of Christ and heaven (Psalm 39.6-7). – William Gurnall (1616-1679)
