A Long Journey

“Did we know a friend or neighbor, who had a long journey of the utmost importance to make, and yet should stand all the day idle, neglecting to set out till the sun was about to go down, we could not but pity and condemn his egregious folly. And yet it is to be feared most men are just such fools; they have a long journey to take, nay, a journey to eternity, a journey of infinite importance, and of which they are obliged to dispatch before the sun of their natural life be gone down and yet they loiter away the time allotted to them to perform their journey in, till sickness or death surprises them; and then they cry out, ‘What shall we do to inherit eternal life?'”
