The Restless Mind Is The Devil’s Play-ground


“The more the heart is replenished with holy meditation, the less will it be pestered with worldy and carnal thoughts.  The mind of man is restless, and cannot lie idle; therefore it is good to set it awork upon holy things.  It will be working upon somewhat; and, if you do not feed it with holy thoughts, what then?  All the imaginations of the heart will be evil, only evil, and that continually (Gen. vi.5)”  — Thomas Manton “Psalm 119 – Vol. 2” v. 97
