Augustine and Piper: Loving Things Other Than God for God’s Sake

“He loves Thee too little who loves anything together with Thee which he loves not for Thy sake.” -Augustine

“What Augustine showed me was that there is a way to delight in God’s creation that is not for its sake but for God’s sake. Discovering how to do that is the secret of not committing idolatry on moonlight nights and beside sparkling morning lakes and over biyearly catfish feasts.” -John Piper
