I have the thought that I am using earthly wealth to gain a heavenly friend. I am not very shrewd at it. But is he not sufficient to give me help even in this way? It is thus no argument against our lifestyle that we are not very successful or competent at it. That we are so unskilled is all the more reason to do it: that we might thereby improve. Instead of trying to talk us out of it, pray for us, that we might become better at it. It is not our heart to waste, but to use money skillfully towards the kingdom of God.

The command of God that we should be holy is not to be considered only as an effect of power and authority, which we must submit unto, but as a fruit of infinite wisdom and goodness also, which it is our highest advantage and interest to comply withal.
