Spiritual Food for Thought

From The Evil of Evils by Jeremiah Burroughs (p. 59)
“True, God will bring about His glory, and have more glory from you another way than if you had been made a dog or a toad, but no thanks to you.  You do what you can in your way of sin to hinder His glory.  God’s almighty power brings this to pass.  But if you go on in your ways of sin, it may be said of you that, if you had been made a dog or toad, God would have had more glory in the world than He now has in making you a man.  Yes, you are so far from bringing God glory that you dishonor God as much as in you lies.  And this, if it lies upon your heart as it should, is a sad consideration to humble the proudest heart in the world; to think that you live, and God has no glory by you, though this is the end for which God made the world.”
