False Promises

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst;
he promises honor and pays with disgrace;
he promises pleasure and pays with pain;
he promises profit and pays with loss;
he promises life and pays with death.”

–Thomas Brooks

    Thank you, Ingrid! Great words from my favorite Puritan, Thomas Brooks. His “Heaven on Earth” has been the most influencial book in my Christian walk other than the Bible. I, too, highly recommend Brooks.

    Another wonderful quote! Thank you for pointing out these gems. I had never heard of Thomas Brooks. I’ll have to do some research on him and see what else he wrote.
