From Our Exchanges

[The Continel]

Look through Christ's dealing with men, and see if the least sign is anywhere discoverable that he was conscious of antagonism between what he did for their temporal bodily welfare and what he did for their eternal spiritual welfare. He dealt with each as he faced the need of it and never was at a loss to find time and place for both. Usually, in truth, he combined them so completely that he did not even think of them as separate interests. People needed restoration to health and strength, and they needed their sins forgiven, and he met both needs simultaneously. And he could deal thus sufficiently with men because he saw men whole.

What a man needed on his physical side was real to Christ and urgent, but that did not make the same man's soul need unreal. He was eager to make life worth while for people here and now, but that did not leave him cold and thoughtless about their preparation for eternity. And he saw everything in proportion. Near things were not the greater to him because they were near, yet looking to the far and looming things did not make him overlook immediate things.
