Parting with Your Isaac for God's Sake

From his Signs of Godliness notebook, Edwards commenting on Gen. 22:12:
God would teach us this by it: that that is a sign of the truth of grace, when men have a preparedness of mind to part with their Isaac, that is, that which is dearest to them of all things earthly, for God's sake.
—Jonathan Edwards, Writings on the Trinity, Grace, and Faith (ed. Sang Hyun Lee; vol. 21, Works; New Haven: Yale University Press, 2003), 483.
