George Whitefield: An Admonishment on Studying

Therefore, dear sir, make God the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end or all your actions. Study to know him more and more, for the more you know, the more you will love him. Study to know him as he has revealed himself in Christ Jesus, and labour every day to copy after that exemplar. In short, renounce the world in affection, deny yourself, and give your heart to God, and he in return will give you himself.
