August 25, 1728

1728  August 25 (Sunday).  I preach’d a.m. on Ps. 119.68, and administered the Sacrament.  I preach’d p.m. on 1 Cor. 10.16.  I have no slender Reason to lament my insensibility, indolence and utter unfruitfullness under all Gods Goodness to me; and it is nothing else but the infinite Mercy of God to poor sinners, his infinite Patience and Compassion towards us under our manifest infirmities that has brought me to the Sacrament for my Conduct is Such that my unprofitableness and indifference might utterly debar me and leave me discouraged.
