What great necessity there is every where of fruitful, edifying speech

January 11, 2017

‘Consider what great necessity there is every where of fruitful, edifying speech.’
    1. In the multitude of the ignorant; and the greatness of their ignorance.
    2. The numbers of the sensual and obstinate.
    3. The power of blindness, and of every sin; what root it hath taken in the most of men.
    4. The multitude of baits which are every where before them.
    5. The subtlety of satan and his instruments in tempting.
    6. The weakness and inconstancy of man, that hath need of constant solicitation.
    7. The want of holy, faithful pastors, which maketh private men’s diligence the more necessary.

Richard Baxter, William Orme, The Practical Works of the Rev. Richard Baxter, vol. 6 (London: James Duncan, 1830), 253.
