“Husks and ashes” by J. Campbell White

“Nothing can wholly satisfy the life of Christ within His followers except the adoption of Christ’s purpose toward the world He came to redeem. Fame, pleasure, and riches are but husks and ashes in contrast with the boundless and abiding joy of working with God for the fulfillment of His eternal plans.”

–J. Campbell White, quoted in John Piper, Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist (Sisters, OR: Multnomah, 1986/1996), 188.
