Looking Back - Stephen Charnock

"In our prosperity we are apt [quick] to have secret thoughts that our enjoyments were debts God owed us, rather than gifts freely bestowed upon us. Hence it is that men are more unwilling to part with their righteousness than with their sins, and are apt to challenge salvation as a due, rather than beg it as an act of grace."
