Quote:
"The pleasures of the unconverted are false pleasures. 1. They are not satisfying. They pretend to satisfy, but they are not satisfying. When the devil leads you into the worldly pleasure, he says, "Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant" (Proverbs 9:17). But when you come to taste the stolen waters, tell me, is there not something awaiting? Look at Proverbs 14:13: "Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful, and the end of that mirth is heaviness." Ah! brethren, is it not so? You that have enjoyed most of the world's pleasures - most of its gaiety, is it not true, that "even in laughter the heart is sorrowful, and the end of that mirth is heaviness"? Is it not true that your lips and your heart are often contrary? Is it not often true that there is a cloud of sorrow in your heart, when there is a smile on your countenance? When you are in the midst of your gaiety is it not true, that "even in laughter the heart is sorrowful, and the end of that mirth is heaviness"? "Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again" (John 4:13). "I said in mine heart, Go to now, I will prove thee with mirth; therefore enjoy pleasure; and, behold, this also is vanity" (Ecclesiastes 2: 1). "I said of laughter, It is mad; and of mirth, What doeth it?" (Ecclesiastes 2:2). Ah! brethren, as long as you are unconverted, with an eternal hell below your feet, it must, and it ever will be the case that "even in laughter the heart is sorrowful, and the end of that mirth is heaviness." -Robert Murray McCheyne
