Every endowment of grace and power and efficiency has been liberally provided…. to give to the world the impression that their faith is not a dominating power in their lives is to greatly dishonor God. Our Father Cares, p. 322.
There are many whose hearts are aching under a load of care because they seek to reach the world’s standard. They have chosen its service, accepted its perplexities, adopted its customs…. The continual worry is wearing out the life forces. Our Lord desires them to lay aside this yoke of bondage. He invites them to accept His yoke; He says, “My yoke is easy, and My burden is light….” Those who accept the one principle of making the service and honor of God supreme will find perplexities vanish, and a plain path before their feet. Desire of Ages, p. 330
