First Remove The Greatest Complaints

Thomas Cole - The Voyage of Life Manhood, 1840 (Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute)

Hugh Binning, Works, p. 121:

You shall never have a remedy of your temporal miseries, unless ye begin at eternal, to prevent them. “Seek first the kingdom of God,” and all other things “shall be added unto you.” Seek first to flee from the wrath to come, and ye shall escape it; and besides the evil of time, afflictions shall be removed. First remove the greatest complaints of sin and condemnation, and how easy is it to answer all the lamentations of this life and make you rejoice in the midst of them!
