We have time for other duties - for our correspondence, our shopping, our afternoon calls on other more favoured friends. But no time for a visit to Him. Is it so far, then, to the nearest church? So far that He may well accept the distance as sufficient reason for our absence, except at times when attendance is of obligation? Can I urge home duties and necessary occupations, when I see who are those that can and do find time to visit Him?
