HYOp-day-byCRITES AND HEAVEN      

He [Balaam] took up his parable, and said,… Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!Numbers 23:7-10

 Balaam himself likes one end of the prize; he would die like a righteous man, though live like the wizard he was. – William Gurnall

 We must not think to dance with the devil all day and sup with Christ at night. – John Trapp

 The hypocrite desires holiness only as a bridge to heaven. – Joseph Alliene

 AFFECTIONS   

Set your affections on things above… – Col 3:2

 …Your own affections – 2 Cor 6:12 R.V.

A man without affections I like the Dead Sea that moves not at all. – Richard Sibbes

 Christianity doth not abrogate {revoke or abolish} affections, it regulates them. Thomas Manton

 Grace comes not to take away a man’s affections, but to take them up. – William Fenner
