How to Profit From Sickness Direct. VI

Direct. VI Also you have now a special help to raise your estimation of the happiness of the saints in heaven, and of the necessity and excellency of a holy life, and of the wisdom of the saints on earth; and to know who maketh the wiseth choice (Luke 10:42, Philippians 1:19 & 23). Now you may see that it is nothing but it is heaven that is worth our seeking, and that is finally to be trusted to, and will not fail us in the hour of our distress; wicked; between those that serve God and those that serve him not, Malachi 3:17-18. Now judge whether a loose and worldly life, or a holy, heavenly life be better? And resolve accordingly. (Taken from Richard Baxter's A Christian Directory.)
