Richard Sibbes on Persisting in Duties

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 5:30 AM

“Our hearts of themselves are reluctant to give up their liberty, and are only with difficulty brought under the yoke of duty. The more spiritual the duty is, the more reluctance there is.  Corruption gains ground, for the most part, in every neglect. It is as in rowing against the tide, one stroke neglected will not be gained in three; and therefore it is good to keep our hearts close to duty, and not to listen to the excuses they are ready to frame. “
Richard Sibbes
(The Bruised Reed-pg 53)
