Advice to physicians

November 15, 2016

 

‘Let your continual observation of the fragility of the flesh, and of man’s mortality, make you more spiritual than other men, and more industrious in preparing for the life to come, and greater contemners of the vanities of this world.’ He that is so frequently among the sick, and a spectator of the dead and dying, is utterly inexcusable if he be himself unprepared, for his sickness or for death. If the heart be not made better, when you almost dwell in the house of mourning, it is a bad and deplorable heart indeed.

Richard Baxter, William Orme, The Practical Works of the Rev. Richard Baxter, vol. 6 (London: James Duncan, 1830), 111.
