Obscuring your sense of God

"Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, takes off your relish for spiritual things, whatever increases the authority of the body over the mind, that thing is sin to you, however innocent it may seem in itself."
— Susanna Wesley

I adore, Mrs. Wesley. When I find anything written about her I devour it. I will be printing this quote and putting it somewhere I can see it everyday.
How many little things do we let get in the way of our "relish for spiritual things" every day?
God says we are to have no other Gods before Him. Anything we put before God is a sin. I need to remember that as I go about my busy day.
Have a great day!
