Testimonies for the Church, vol. 6, Page 439

Our churches should not feel jealous and neglected because they do not receive ministerial labor. They should themselves rather take up the burden and labor most earnestly for souls.

*****

Every talent in our churches should be employed in the work of doing good. The rough places of nature, the wild places, God has made attractive by placing beautiful things among the most unsightly. This is the work we are called to do.

*****

We need in our churches youth who are working upon the Christian endeavor principles, and the beginning must be made at home. The faithful performance of home duties has a reflex influence upon the character. In the father's house is to be given the evidence of fitness for work in the church.

*****

The Lord does not judge us according to the elevation of our various spheres, but according to the faithfulness with which we fill them.

*****

If we do but one third of that which we have entrusted talents to do, the other two thirds are working against Christ.

*****

The greatest work that can be done in our world is to glorify God by living the character of Christ.
