"We give ourselves with abandon to our pleasures as if we would die tomorrow. But we build houses and we accumulate things as if we would live forever. You ought to consider this more. The Puritans were great at mediating on this life with the next one in view. I encourage you to read Jeremiah Burroughs' A Treatise of Earthly Mindedness. It is a wonderful meditation on exactly what this kind of worldly mindedness means, and what is looks like in our lives." -- Dr. Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.
An important book for today, showing us the great sin of thinking as the world thinks rather than having our minds conformed to the mind of God. Also includes a 2nd gem, A Heavenly Conversation, or, "Walking With God."
