Ministry to the Cities, Page 85

heavenly agencies for the salvation of souls! But let us “awake out of sleep,” and put all our God-given abilities into the work, that it may be written in the books that we are “redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” If we keep our talents inactive, we lose all ability to make use of them. The mind is a gift of God, designed to be improved and developed, that we may be able to enlighten others; but it may be perverted and misused in doing Satan's work.—The Review and Herald, April 21, 1896.

THE AGED NOT TO BE ASSIGNED TO WORK IN CITIES

City Ministry Not Advisable for Elderly or Feeble.—Feeble or aged men and women should not be sent to labor in unhealthful, crowded cities. Let them labor where their lives will not be needlessly sacrificed. Our brethren who bring the truth to the cities must not be obliged to imperil their health in the noise and bustle and confusion, if retired places can be secured.—Letter 168, 1909 (Medical Ministry, 309).
