Have been enabled more so today than of late to fight after the things of God. My excuse for not doing so has been that I have been sick, but that is a poor excuse for not walking with God or being filled to overflowing from his goodness to me.
Young Christians are sometimes distressed because their desire to preach the Gospel to the heathen has been opposed by parents: such should be encouraged to thank God for the obstacle; and to seek by prayer its removal. When they have learnt to move man through God at home, they will be the better prepared to do the same thing in the mission-field. Where there is fitness for the work, the way will probably be made plain after a time of patient waiting.
