A barber’s apprentice named Robert Robinson was living in London when he had, according to one author, “associated with a notorious gang of hoodlums and lived a debauched life."


After hearing evangelist George Whitfield, Robinson returned to the Christian faith he learned from his mother, became a Baptist preacher, and wrote many hymns, including one with this famous lyric: “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it; prone to leave the God I love.” 


The God of Israel was truly a “fount of many blessings” to His chosen people, although they had wandered far from their covenant relationship with Him. Are you prone to leave the God you love? If you are, return to Him today, and drink from His fountain.
