Jonathan Edwards on Balancing Family and Other Ministries

How did Jonathan Edwards view his roles as both family man and pastor?

Here's an excerpt from the article:

"Edwards would agree that one is to "spend and be spent" for the souls in his congregation and the souls in his family. He was one day to stand before the Judge to give an account of the souls in his care, whether in his congregation or in his family. There was no dichotomy because both were the 'work of the Lord.' "
