Pithy gems from David Brainerd!

   ~  ~  ~  ~

I love to live on the brink of eternity!

   ~  ~  ~  ~

Let me forget the world and be swallowed up in the desire to glorify God.

   ~  ~  ~  ~

Oh! one hour with God infinitely exceeds all the pleasures and delights of this lower world!

   ~  ~  ~  ~

I have received my all from God.
Oh, that I could return my all to God!

   ~  ~  ~  ~

O how vain and unworthy it is to live for any lower end than the glory of God!
