D. L. Moody
man that steals my pocket-book
man that steals my pocket-book loses a good deal more than I do. I can
afford to let him have my pocket-book a great deal better than he can
afford to take it. See how much that man loses that steals my pocket-book.
Perhaps he may get a few dollars; or he may steal my coat; but he does
not get much. See how much he has lost. Take an inventory of what that
man loses if he loses heaven. Think of it. No thief shall inherit the
kingdom of God. To any thief I would say: steal no more. Let him ask
God to forgive him; let him repent of his sin and turn to God. If you
get eternal life it is worth more than the whole world. If you were
to steal the whole world, you wouldn't get much, after all. The whole
world don't amount to much, if you have not eternal life with it, to
enjoy yourself in the future."
