The Illusion of Success

"Alas, how much is sacrificed for money!  Christian fellowship, the joys of gathering at the table of the Lord, gospel work, and privileges of mutual edification and instruction in divine things- all are parted with often simply because the opportunity arises of adding a few paltry dollars to the monthly income and savings.  Brethren with families even will leave a town or city where the spiritual support and fellowship of their brethren is found, and where their children have the privilege of the gospel meeting and the Sunday-school, simply because they see, or fancy they see, an opportunity to better their earthly circumstances.  Alas, in many instances, they miss all they had hoped for, and lose spiritually what is never regained!" – Harry Ironside, Notes on the Minor Prophets (1909)
