Against a Pretty Service

One does not simply add prettiness to the Lord’s service. The Lord is greater than to be amused by dainty little fancies.

Prettiness is an affectation as dull as it is frivolous.

The beauty of the Lord is deadly to sin.

It is an austere beauty that the soul feels when it touches a love that is stronger than death.

Meeting with the Lord, a mortal man can have no worthy pretence.

To ‘connect with’ the Lord in prettiness is to have fellowship with an idol.

When the Lord condescended to the condition of men, he did not abhor the virgin’s womb, and all Jerusalem was troubled.
