Words of William Seeker

"A principle by which a Christian should walk, is this: That there is no judging of the inward conditions of men by the outward dispensations of God.

"The greatness of our estates is no argument of the goodness of our hearts. To prize ourselves by what we have, and not by what we are, is to estimate the value of the jewel by the golden frame which contains it. Grace and gold can live together; but the smallest degree of the former in the heart, is preferable to a chain of the latter about the neck...

The abundance of the infidel is as a golden chain to bind him to the earth, and the apparent miseries of the believer are as fiery chariots to convey him to heaven." -- William Seeker, 1660
