“Lawful Recreations” by James Meikle

In Uncategorized on March 30, 2006 at 2:35 pm

Time is one of the talents put into every man's hand, and is more precious than we are well aware of.

To prepare for death, and to improve for eternity–may well employ our time though ever so long. O! then, howmay my heart weep to think how much precious time I have trifled away! O to be wise in all time coming!

Lawful recreations are allowed by God. But in this, how soon may we go beyond what is lawful! Too much pleasure in them, too much time spent about them–spoils all. When our amusements become a part of our employment, or call us away from something more necessary or noble–it is high time to drop them altogether!

May God helps us to attack what is important and necessary rather than be distracted by trifles.
