The Godly Man’s Picture – Part 3 – Romans 12:9-21

It is hard for a clod of dust—to become a star. “Love not the world” (1 John 2:15). Many would like to be godly—but the honors and profits of the world divert them. Where the world fills both head and heart—there is no room for Christ. He whose mind is rooted in the earth, is likely enough to deride godliness. When our Savior was preaching against sin, “the Pharisees, who were covetous, derided him” (Luke 16:14). The world eats the heart out of godliness, as the ivy eats the heart out of the oak. The world kills with her golden darts! – Thomas Watson
