Excerpt from The Soul's Life: Its Commencement, Progress and Maturity

"Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still." - Psalm iv. 4.

Thoughtlessness and excitement supply the food upon which sin lives. Whenever men offend against God's law, it is against so many solemn motives, such awful truths, such warnings of coming judgments, that if men thought at all, it would be impossible but that their soul-alarming power should check the evil desire, and frighten them back from the flowery paths of sin. Things in their length and depth past human speech, and prospects in which are bound up every hope of peace and every affection of the soul, all combine to arrest men's feet in the giddy race life, till, earnest awake to the eternal realities of the things unseen, they "stand in awe, and sin not."
