"Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."
Time is a jewel more worth than a world!
Time is not yours to dispose of as you please; it
is a glorious talent that men must be accountable
for, as well as any other talent. Of all talents, time
is the hardest well to improve. Ah, beloved, have
not you need to improve your timewho have
much work to do in a short time:
your souls to save,
a God to honor,
a Christ to exalt,
a hell to escape,
a race to run,
a crown to win,
temptations to withstand,
corruptions to conquer,
afflictions to bear,
mercies to improve, and
your generation to serve.
