The first great and primary business

“The first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day is to have my soul happy in the Lord. The first thing to be concerned about is… how I might get my soul into a happy state, and how my inner man might be nourished… the most important thing is to give myself to the reading of the word of God and to meditation on it, that thus my heart might be comforted, encouraged, warned, reproved, instructed; and that thus, while meditating, my heart might be brought into experimental communion with the Lord.”
