This illustration was based on his resolution,
"Resolved, never to lose one moment of time, but improve it the most profitable way I possibly can."
As he travelled to visit his parishioners, he would focus his mind to wrestle with and dwell on subjects in the Scriptures, following the thought through to some conclusion. He would associate the thought with a piece of paper pinned to his coat and write down the thought at home.
