Signs of the Times

[Rev. George Henry, in the Genesee Country Express and Advertiser, Dansville, New York]

The great multitude who attended upon the ministry of Jesus Christ always interests us. How did he get the multitude to come to him? He did not advertise; he did not make a show; he apparently made no effort to draw the crowd. Sometimes he sought to escape the multitude. What drew them? Mark tells us that they "heard what great things he did." That was all, but that was enough. He simply "went about doing good" and they came to him. Suppose church people should spend as much time and thought and energy and money doing good as they usually spend in schemes to catch the crowd? . . . Perhaps the crowd come if we did not say a word about attendance; if we forgot to count the number present and got busy doing good.
