This sermon is about the dangers of indolence and laxity -- at both the individual and national/global levels. The fall of Rome is used as an example of the danger to nations while a wasted life is cited for individuals. The cure is to "feed the fire", i.e our physical selves, mental selves and spiritual selves. Davis recommends the early New England custom of morning family prayer for the latter, careful reading for feeding our brains, and eating and exercising for our physical selves.
