It's too bad more of us don't read "Sister White" more often. She actually has some good things to say if we get past the whole squabbling over her role as a prophet.
I have been reading The Ministry of Healing for the first time, and yesterday I came across this quote that just about everyone can probably agree with, no matter what side of the aisle you may sit on: "The inhumanity of man toward man is our greatest sin" (p. 163). That's quite a statement to make! And, indeed, one need not observe a church potluck too long to realize that oftentimes we can be downright nasty towards one another.
She goes onto write, "Many think that they are representing the justice of God while they wholly fail of representing His tenderness and His great love." How I need to remember this every day!
God can plant that tenderness and love in our hearts. It does not come natural to us, but "He who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6).
