Doing Something for God

A selection from a letter by Henry Venn, Church of England minister, to James Kershaw, July 8, 1769:

Oh, pray for me! And I will endeavour to return the favour—that every morning I may rise with an active and steady purpose to be doing something for God, as the miser rises with the design to get more gain each day.

Letters of Henry Venn, by John Venn, first published in 1835, republished by the Banner of Truth, 1993, p. 155.
