“I fall short of Thy glory every day by spending hours unprofitably, by thinking that things I do are good, when they are not done to Thy end.”
“Show me how to know when a thing is evil which I think is right and good, how to know when what is lawful comes from an evil principle.”
"May I never rest in a system of doctrine, however scriptural, that does not bring or further salvation, or teach me to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, or help me to live soberly, righteously, godly”
