Edwards on Levity

This is a faithful wound from a friend (Prov 27:6). I think levity permeates much more than we realize. Apparently it only takes a little to ruin much (Eccl 10:1).

“Don’t talk of things of religion and matters of experience with an air of lightness and laughter, which is too much the manner in many places. In all your course, walk with God and follow Christ as a little, poor, helpless child, taking hold of Christ’s hand, keeping your eye on the mark of the wounds on his hands and side, whence came the blood that cleanses you from sin and hides your nakedness under the skirt of the white shining robe of his righteousness.”
