Timeless Wisdom for Seminary Graduates . . .

. . . and for me.  Delivered by Archibald Alexander, November 1815.  A taste:

In these hints of advice I subjoin an earnest exhortation that you look well to the spiritual condition of your own souls. Endeavor to obtain full satisfaction on Scriptural grounds that your piety is genuine. It will be an awful thing to preach to others and then become a castaway yourself. Give all diligence to make your calling and election sure.

Endeavor also to grow in grace. Keep up a lively sense of religion in your own hearts and strive to promote lively piety in others. While you await the best gifts, remember that there is a more excellent way. No gifts, no knowledge, no beneficence, will serve us any purpose without charity; that is, without sincere love to God and man.
