December 28 Thoughts for the quiet hour

The friendship of the world is enmity with God

James 4:4

It is like the ivy with the oak. The ivy may give the oak a grand, beautiful appearance, but all the while it is feeding on its vitals. Are we compromising with the enemies of God? Are we being embraced by the world by its honors, its pleasures, its applause? This may add to us in the world’s estimation, but our strength becomes lost.

Denham Smith[1]
