What's your greatest prize?

My son, give me your heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
Proverbs 23:26

Remember a Christ highly prized will be Christ gloriously obeyed. As men prize the Lord Jesus Christ, so they will obey Him. The great reason why Jesus Christ is no more obeyed, it is because He is no more prized. Men look upon Him as a person of no worth, no dignity, no glory; they make slight of Him, and that is the reason they are so poor in their obedience to Him. Oh, if the sons of men did but more divinely prize Christ, they would more purely, and more fully, and more constantly obey Him. Let this bespeak all your hearts highly to prize the Lord Jesus, who is your life.
-Thomas Brooks
