What a snare, too, to the believer, is the society of the ungodly. Our nature is so much more inclined to evil than to good, that we insensibly imbibe the poison, and it contaminates our whole spiritual being. Who could be enclosed in a sepulcher with a putrid corpse and not feel his health and strength and life decline? May the Lord in mercy preserve us!
None but God Himself is a satisfying Portion. Earth, with all its promised comforts, cannot do it.
