If any Elder who reads this [article on being an example to the congregation], after searching carefully into his own life, finds that he is not, in some good degree, setting the example herein described, let him at once either resign his position or amend his ways. It is a fearful thing to be placed in a position the very nature of which proclaims one an example to the church of God, if the example actually exhibited is not a good one. O that the great Shepherd and Overseer of all may guide the under shepherds, and help them to go before their flocks in the unerring pathway of truth and holiness.
--J. W. McGarvey (1 March 1829 – 6 October 1911. Was a minister, author, and religious educator in the American Restoration Movement)
