Beware of Deluding Yourself

“Let all beware of deluding themselves with a reliance on the future of this life as likely to afford more enjoyment than their experience of the past…Bickersteth: ‘The young expect to find it when grown up and their own masters. Parents, when their children are settled and provided for. The merchant, when wealth is acquired, and independence secured. The laborer, when his day’s or week’s toil is ended. The ambitious, in gaining power and reputation. The covetous, in gaining money to supply all his wants. The lover of pleasure in earthly enjoyments.  The sick, in health. The student, in gaining knowledge.’ ” –William S. Plumer “Psalms” p. 75

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
