If our principal treasure be as we profess, in things spiritual and heavenly, and woe unto us if it be not so! – on them will be our affections, and consequently our desires and thoughts, be principally fixed.
Let us use worldly things as wise pilgrims do their staves and other necessaries convenient for their journey. So long as they help us forward in our way, let us make use of them, and accordingly esteem them. But if they become troublesome hindrances and cumbersome burdens, let us leave them behind us, or cast them away.
