As you relieve their sufferings, you will find opportunity to speak to them of the love of Jesus.—Counsels on Health, 533 (1901).

Simplicity of Method

Christ Has Shown How to Help Humanity—Read the record of how the Saviour fed the multitude with five loaves and two fishes.... This merciful provision for temporal need helped to fasten in the minds of the people the gracious words of truth which He had spoken....

In this miracle Christ has shown how medical missionary work is to be bound up with the ministry of the Word. His disciples are to take the bread of life and the water of salvation, and give it to those who are longing for spiritual help. And as there is need, they are to feed the hungry and clothe the naked. Thus they do double service for the Master. The beauty and utility of the work we do for God consists in its symmetry and harmony and in its all-round adaptability and efficiency.—Manuscript 5, 1901.

Come Close to Suffering Humanity—Christ has left us an example, that we should follow in His steps. He always drew near to the most needy, the most hopeless, and, attracted by His sympathy, they came close to Him. He assures every suffering, needy, sinful soul that he will never want for a great Physician to give him spiritual help. We stand too far away from suffering humanity. Let us draw nearer to Christ, that our souls may be filled with His grace, and with a desire to give this grace to others.—Letter 17, 1903.

In Practical Lines—We are to remember that the work of reaching souls cannot be confined to any one
