All glittering glow-worm glories
(Anne Dutton's Letters on Spiritual Subjects)
"O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who
looks after you and cares for you." Hosea 14:8
As to our heart-idolatry, it is a very great iniquity
of which the Lord's own people are deeply guilty.
Let us bring our every idol unto Him to be entirely
slain, so shall our hearts be separated from them,
and our admiration of, and sinful affection to, all
glittering glow-worm glories sink and die before
the rising attracting display of His all-transcendent
and infinite excellencies!
"Little children, keep yourselves from idols!" 1 John 5:21
