Samuel Rutherford Quote, no. 2

"It is not our part to make a treasure here: anything under the covering of heaven we can build upon is but ill ground and a sandy foundation: every good thing, except God, wanteth a bottom, and cannot stand its alone: how then can it bear the weight of us?"--Rutherford, Loveliness of Christ, 41.

I'm sure my memory is faulty on this, but... I think it was Rutherford who said something to the effect of "build no nest in these trees, for the forest is condemned to be burned." Of a similar stripe as your post.

BTW, my brother from Hattiesburg is sitting in my living room right now. I've got to connect you two when he returns.
