Jonathan Edwards: Thoughts For the Day

For if we love Him not for His own sake, but for something else, then our love is not terminated on Him, but on something else, as its ultimate object….If we love not God because He is what He s, but only because He is profitable to us, in truth we love Him not at all.  – Jonathan Edwards

(Works 3, 144)
