Savior; when dark at night, think of the night of death, when no man can work; when you see sweat, think of the worth of souls; when you are tempted, think of the lonesome mount; when you sin, think of Satan, who was once happy in heaven; when you see a woman prevailing with her husband to do wrong, think of Eve; when you know a man to lay his meanness on his wife, or says she is the cause of it, think of poor old Adam ; when you see fire, think of hell ; when you feel pain, think of the rich man; when you see a good man slighted, think of Lazarus. You must die by yourself, and give an account for yourself. God has promised you grace for your time ; do right. and you shall come off more than a conqueror."
