A Comfortable Nest

God has never meant this world to be a comfortable nest for us. If we try to make it such for ourselves,  He will plant thorns in it so that we may be compelled to mount and find our soul's true home somewhere else, in a higher and nobler sphere than this poor world can give!

[Charles H. Spurgeon]

Job 29:18 ... Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.

Micah 2:10 ... Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.

Colossians 3:2 ... Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
