Do not starve yourself any longer

"O begin! Fix some part of every day for private exercises…whether you like it or not, read and pray daily. It is for your life; there is no other way; else you will be a trifler all your days…do justice to your own soul; give it time and means to grow. Do not starve yourself any longer. Take up your cross and be a Christian altogether. Then will all the children of God rejoice..." (John Wesley, Letters to Mr. John Trembath, in Works, Vol. 12; page 254. Quoted in 'Three Simple Rules - A Wesleyan Way of Living', by Rueben P. Job)
