God’s View and Man’s View

“Man calls himself happy if he can grasp and cling to the objects of this world; but the Word of God asserts that he is really wretched, because this world will soon be melted with fervent heat. Man flatters himself that all is well with him while he gratifies the flesh, and feed the appetites of his corrupt nature; but God asserts in thunder-tones that all is ill with him, because his spirit is not fed with the bread that comes down from heaven.”
-W.G.T.Shedd, from his Sermons to the Spiritual Man, p.83-84
