Thomas Guthrie (1803–1873; one of the most popular Scottish preachers of his day) used to say:

“If you find yourself loving any pleasure better than your prayers, any book better than the Bible, any house better than the house of God, any table better than the Lord's table, any persons better than Christ, any indulgence better than the hope of Heaven - take ALARM.”

“Preachers must have a passion to produce people whose satisfaction in God is so solid, so deep, and so unshakable that suffering and death - losing everything this world can give - will not make people murmur or curse God, but rest in the promise:
"In His presence is fullness of joy, at His right hand are pleasures forevermore" (Ps 16:11). - John Piper.

Bible says: “After all this, there is only one thing to say: Have reverence for God, and obey his commands, because this is all that we were created for. God is going to judge everything we do, whether good or bad, even things done in secret.” (Ecc 12:13-14 GNB).
