Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

Tennent begins this sermon about immoderate care for worldly things by citing Luke 10:41-42, "And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it appears Tennent wrote this sermon in 1744, and delivered it again in 1753 and 1760.
