Quote

A shorter quote this time, from Spurgeon's The Treasury of David.

On Psalm 18:
'And I pray mark how he begins: he sets not up trophies to himself, but triumphs in his God-- "I will love thee, O Lord, my strength." As the love of God is the beginning of all our mercies, so love to God should be the end and effect of them all. As the stream leads us to the spring, so all the gifts of God must lead us to the giver of them.'
-Richard Steele's "Plain Discourse upon Uprightness," 1670.
