My Notes for Pilgrim’s Progress

I started reading Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan.  If you are interested in a free reading copy, there is a free PDF: There are also many versions of it in physical format.

In my first sitting with this book, I took particular notice of the children named, Passion and Patience. The children were to each get an inheritance, but Passion wanted theirs immediately so they could enjoy it now. Patience wanted to wait. So Passion received their inheritance and it was gone pretty quick. Patience waited patiently and knowing their inheritance was still available. While this is grossly (and I mean grossly) paraphrased, I was reminded of the scripture, which yes, I had to look up to find out which book it came from,

What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, only to lose his soul? – Mark 8:36
