The Preciousness of Time

The following sermon, dated December 1734, addresses a relevant fault found in today’s society, namely, the relentless pursuit of being entertained. To anaesthetize the conscience, we push thoughts of our mortality far into the future; some day we will die, but not today, not this hour. Few last suppers are eaten by death-row inmates prior to their execution, because the joy found in earthly things fades as one approaches the threshold of eternity. But here Edwards uncovers a startling paradox: that being mindful of the hour of our death makes us live life to the fullest in every way if one is living this life with eternal priorities in mind.
