Do All The Good You Can

John Wesley (1703-1791) was the founder of Methodism.

During his lifetime it was estimated that he had travelled more than 250,000 miles, riding on horseback, throughout England, Wales and Scotland – and he even ventured over the seas to Northern Ireland.

And not only that but he often read books whilst riding on his horse to his next preaching engagement!

Most people – even experienced riders – would content themselves with just being able to ride, but reading a book as they rode would be a challenge beyond most people’s abilities.

One of his best known quotes is:-

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

John Wesley, of course, also travelled quite extensively in other countries, especially America. If Wesley had been alive today I wonder what he would have made of Youtube? I am sure that he would have found many innovative ways of using today’s electronic technology.

With many peaceful blessings
