Principles and Practices - December 27


Life is a warfare in which we must fight for God's glory and for His interests; it is a field in which we must scatter the seed for our eternal harvesting. Every moment that we devote to nature without a supernatural motive, but simply for its own satisfaction, is lost for God's glory, lost for our own eternal happiness; and as God has placed us on this earth in order that we may glorify Him, and as every single moment of our time is His, we are also robbing God of His property.
