Chapter 8—Health

General Statements

92. Health is a great treasure. It is the richest possession that mortals can have. Wealth, honor, or learning is dearly purchased, if it be at the loss of the vigor of health. None of these attainments can secure happiness if health is wanting.—Christian Education, 16.

93. The health should be as sacredly guarded as the character.—Christian Temperance and Bible Hygiene, 82, 83.

94. Our physical, mental, and moral powers are not our own, but lent us of God to be used in his service.—The Health Reformer, November 1, 1877.

95. The more perfect our health, the more perfect will be our labor.—Testimonies for the Church 3:13.

96. The importance of the health of the body is to be taught as a Bible requirement.—Unpublished Testimonies, August 30, 1896.

97. All who profess to be followers of Jesus should feel that a duty rests upon them to preserve their bodies in the best condition of health, that their minds may be clear to comprehend heavenly things.—Testimonies for the Church 2:522.

98. That time is well spent which is directed to the establishment and preservation of sound physical and mental health.... It is easy to lose health, but it is difficult to regain it.—The Review and Herald, September 23, 1884.
