Sips from Ancient Wells

“There is no time yours but the present time, no day yours but the present day; therefore, do not please and feed yourselves with hopes of time to come; that you will repent, but not yet; and lay hold on mercy, but not yet; and give yourselves up to the Lord next week, next month, next year; for that [same] God who has promised you mercy and favor upon the day of your return [to him], has not promised to prolong your lives till that day comes.” — Thomas Brooks
