With the fine movie on the life of William Wilberforce (Amazing Grace) in theaters, it seems good to share one of his convictions here. It comes from Wilberforce’s book, A Practical View of Christianity (published in 1797).
No man has a right to be idle. Where is it, that in such a world as this, health, and leisure, and affluence many not find some ignorance to instruct, some wrong to redress, some want [lack] to supply, some misery to alleviate?
Good question. Got an answer?
