Had I But One More Year

I have lost a world of time! Had I but one more year it should be spent in studying David’s psalms and Paul’s epistles. Mind the world less and God more. – Claudius Salmasius (on his deathbed)

Though a highly revered scholar of his day, Salmasius died with a stricken conscience.

If you had but one more year, what would you do with it? I doubt many would answer that question with an enthusiastic: READ MY BIBLE MORE!

However, I have been beside the dying and can attest that this is exactly what is regretted.

Mind the world less and God more.

Heed this advice!
