Slothfulness in the service of God is as damning a sin as open rebellion against him; for the slothful and the wicked servants shall share in the same condemnation. Matt. xxv.30. If we are not determined therefore to part with our ease, sloth, self-indulgence, and our unprofitable method of spending our time, and to mortify and crucify our lusts, we must be contented to spend our days without any real peace, and in the end to lie down in sorrow.
