We Become Like What We Love

We Become Like What We Love

2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 John 4:20

The worth and excellency of a soul is to be measured by the object of its love: he who loves mean and sordid things does thereby become base and vile. But a noble and well-placed affection does advance and improve the spirit unto a conformity with the perfections which it loves.

Henry Scougal (1650 – 1678)
