Jonathan Edwards, on the Foolishness of Trusting Your Own Heart

The Sunday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.

edwards-jonathan“Pride takes many forms and shapes and encompasses the heart like the layers of an onion – when you pull off one layer, there is another underneath. Therefore, we need to have the greatest watch imaginable over our hearts with respect to pride and to cry out earnestly to the Great Searcher of our hearts for His help. He who trusts his own heart is a fool.”

Jonathan Edwards
