Changeable Things

Of all that deformity and dissimilitude to the divine nature which is come upon us by the fall, there is no one part more eminent, or rather no one defect more evident, than inconstancy and unstableness of mind in embracing that which is spiritually good. Man being turned from his unchangeable rest, seeks to quiet and satiate his soul with restless movings towards changeable things.

– John Owen –

from a sermon entitled The Shaking and Translating of Heaven and Earth, volume 8 of Works, page 247
