Whitefield on Wasting Time

Persons are apt to flatter themselves that they are free and at liberty to spend whole evenings now at cards, at dice, or any diversion whatsoever, to pass away, as they call it, a tedious evening. They can do any thing now to pass away that, which is hastening as fast as thought: time is always upon the wing; it is no sooner present but it is past, and no sooner come but it is gone. And have we so much to do, and so little time to do it in, and yet complain of time lying heavy upon our hands?

I'm amazed by God's grace. Lindsay and I were married in 2001 and we are blessed with four children. I've been in ministry since 2001. Prior to starting Anchor Baptist Church in 2014, it was my joy replant the First Baptist Church in Miami, Arizona.
