Spurgeon's Illustration Collection
'Who,' saith an old divine, 'chides a servant for taking away the first course at a feast when the second consists of far greater delicacies?' Who then can feel regret that this present world passeth away, when he sees that an eternal world of joy is coming? The first course is grace, but the second is glory, and that is as much better as the fruit is better than the blossom.
