An encouraging lesson from the life of John Wesley…

A very BRIEF but cool story I read today regarding John Wesley.  If God is of any value to us, may we imitate Wesley in this way…

John Wesley made an awful lot of money. Do you know what he did with it? He built orphanages and churches. He printed Bibles and hymn books. There was no time wasted in his life. He was methodical and systematic. One evening he went to dinner with one of the greatest writers in all of English literature. After dinner, the man said, “Now you’ve finished dinner, let’s fold our legs under the table and have a nice time of conversation.” Wesley said, “I’m sorry, I have to go.” The author objected, “But it’s not yet nine o’clock, why are you going?” Wesley said, “I have an appointment in the morning at four o’clock.” “At four o’clock tomorrow morning?!?” “Every morning of my life,” Wesley said. “With whom?” To which Wesley said, “With God.”

John Wesley was a life that was MIGHTILY used of God.  I do not wonder why.

Writing that you might not waste your life, believer-
