As wise merchants do…

Therefore do as wise merchants ; at the foot of every page draw up the account, so help it forward ; so it will not be hard to sum up a long account, and reckon up our whole lives, and beg a release of all our debts ; therefore daily come and humble yourselves before the Lord. The oftener you do this, the sooner you will have the comfort of pardon ; but when you keep off from God, and delay, you suffer the loss of peace, and the loss of God’s favour ; and hardness of heart, and atheism, and carnal security increase upon you.
