As the life of a covetous man is a seeking of riches,
and the life of an ambitious man is a seeking of worldly honour 
and applause 

so the life of a man that liveth to God, 

is a seeking him; 

to please him,

 honour him, 

and enjoy him: 

and so much of this as he attaineth, 

so much doth he attain of satisfaction and content. 
If you live to God, and seek him as your end and all, 

the want of anything will be tolerable to you, 

which is but consistent with the fruition of his love.

Richard Baxter

Walking with God
