"Every man was made to glorify and enjoy God. This enjoyment is chiefly realized in acts of devotion. How many of your acquaintances are devout, thoughtful, and pious who neglect public worship? Doubtless but very few. How many, on the contrary, are vicious, wicked, and profane? Compare the church going population of your own town with those who go not to the house of God; compare them as citizens, as business men; compare their influence in society, and then say whether the public means of grace are not useful. Let the comparison be fair and faithful."
