Sailors would be loath to sail without using their log to test their pace, and show their progress. The wonder is that so many Christian professors navigate the sea of life, and are utterly careless whether they are making headway or drifting from their course. Should we not all cast overboard our log? There are various ways by which with readiness we may measure our progress: our prayers, our labours, our patience, our faith, our communion with God, our humility, may all serve as logs by which to measure our sailing pace.
