Identifying Weights That Slow You Down - Tim Conway

Thousands of Christians are like water­logged vessels. They cannot sink, but they are so satur­ated with inconsistencies and worldliness and permitted evil that they can be towed only with difficulty into the celestial port
F.B. Meyer
We cannot win if we are weighted—the pace will have to be very swift and we cannot get to it, or keep it up, if we have weights to carry. Unloaded we shall find the race taxing all our powers. But weighted, we shall be doomed to failure. Oh, to lay aside all worrisome care, fretfulness, ambition, anger, greed and selfish desire! These were never worth the labor they have cost us. 
C. Spurgeon
