[It's a Pink-fest on the BB!] First , what are the objects before your mind in times of recreation ? What do your thoughts most run upon ? Second , what are the objects of your choice ? When you have to decide how to spend an evening or the Sabbath afternoon , what do you select ? Third , which occasions you the most sorrow , the loss of earthly things , or lack of communion with God ? Which greater grief ( or chagrin ) , the spoiling of your plans , or the coldness of your heart to Christ ? Fourth , what is your favorite topic of conversation ? Do you hanker after the news of the day , or to meet with those who talk of the altogether lovely One ? Fifth , do your good intentions materialize , or are they nothing but empty dreams ? Are you spending more or less time than formerly on your knees ? Is the Word sweeter to your taste , or has your soul lost its relish for it ?
