WORLDLINESS
[ Also see Good Taste ]

They best pass over the world who trip over it quickly; for it is but a bog. If we stop, we sink.
      - Elizabeth I

Buying, possessing, accumulating--this is not worldliness. But doing this in the love of it, with no love of God paramount--doing it so that thoughts of eternity and God are an intrusion--doing it so that one's spirit is secularized in the process; this is worldliness.
      - Robert Herrick

Christians should live in the world, but not be filled with it. A ship lives in the water; but if the water gets into the ship, she goes to the bottom. So Christians may live in the world; but if the world gets into them, they sink.
      - Dwight Lyman Moody

It has been well said that there is a sin of other-worldliness no less than a sin of worldliness, and Christendom has had a large measure of the former sin as well as of the latter. People have been taught so much about preparing for heaven that they sometimes become very indifferent workers on earth, and in anticipating the joys of the future world have overlooked the infinite possibilities for good in the world that now is.
      - William James Potter

Set not your heart upon the world, since God hath not made it your portion.
      - Samuel Rutherford

O my God! close my eyes, that I may see Thee; separate me from the world, that I may enjoy Thy company.
      - Christian Scriver (used pseudonym Gotthold)

As the love of the heavens makes us heavenly, the love of virtue virtuous, so doth the love of the world make one become worldly.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

A Christian making money fast is just a man in a cloud of dust, it will fill his eyes if he be not careful.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon
