Lesson for January 9
THE 8TANDARO OF CHRI8TIAN
LESSON TEXT—Luke «:l7-8 .
GOLDEN TEXT—Be ye therefor*
perfect, even a your Father which
Is in heaven la perfect.
PRIMARY TOPIC—How Jesus Wanta
Ua to Live.
JUNIOR TOPIC—Marching Ordera for
INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOP-
IC—What Christ Requires of Us.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOP-
IC—Christ's Life and Example for Ua.
The context (v. 26) clearly Implies
what la elsewhere positively declared
(John 16:18-21; Luke 21:17) that the
followers of Christ will be hated and
opposed. In this lesson Christ sets
forth the principles governing the life
of his followers.
I. "Love Your Enemies" (v. 27).
Love here Is not a natural affection.
To love friends Is easy, but to love
enemies Is only possible to those who
have been made partakers of the di-
vine nature—been born again.
II. "Do Good to Them Whioh Hate
You" (v. 27).
Love is positive In its nature: The
true Christian will not merely refrain
from doing Injury to one who hates
him, but will be concerned with and
engaged in doing good to him. True
love acts according to its own essen-
III. "Bless Them That Curse You"
To bless means to speak well of—to
Invoke a blessing tfpon. Injury by
words la hard to let go unchallenged.
The one who Is a child of Qod and al-
lows the Spirit of his Maker and Re-
deemer to express Itself through him
will return blessings for cursings.
IV. "Pray for Them Which Desplte-
fully Uee You" (v. 28).
We should pray for those who
abuse us. The best commentary on
this precept is Christ's own example
(Luke 23:34). "Father forgive them
for they know not what the.v do."
When Christ was reviled He reviled
not again. When He suffered. He
thitiatened not, hut committed Hlro-
■elf to Him that Judgeth righteously.
(I Pet. 2.23).
V. Patiently Endure Wrong and In.
Jury" (v. 29).
The Christian Is not to bristle «n
defense of his rights but rather to suf-
fer Insult, injury and even loss. This
expresses the law which shojjld gov-
ern the Individual's actions, but
should not he pressed so far that evil-
doers can go unchecked. Rightly con-
atltuted government has been ordained
of God for the protection of the Inno-
cent and the punishment of evildoers
VI. Give to Every One That Ask-
•th of Thee <*. «0).
God Is the supreme example. He
gives freely and generously but intel-
ligently. This text does" not author-
ize Indiscriminate giving. There is
a giving which Injures the one to
whom the gift is made. To give a man
money to buy whisky would be wrong.
VI I. Do aa You With to B* Dona
By (v. 81).
This Is called the Golden Rule. Tt Is
the sum total of Christian duty as It
pertains to human Interrelations. Hu-
man beings carry with them the con-
aclousness which f.s the touchstone
which teaches them their duty to oth-
ers. If men were to live up to this
rule the problem of capital and labor
would be solved and end would be put
to war. International relations would
be peaceably adjusted and all profi-
teering in business would end. Prac-
ticing this precept proves that we are
children of God. Loving those who
love us, doing good to those who do
good to us, lending to those who lend
to us, is the common practice even
among sinners. No new birth, no Holy
Spirit needed to live this kind of life.
VIII. Be Merciful (v. 38).
This means to be filled with pity
and compassion. To enter Into sym-
pathy with every need of others. The
aupreme example as to thla is the
IX. Censorlout Judgments Con.
demned (v. 27).
This means that we should not seek
out the evil or faults In others for
our satisfaction. We should not sit
In censorious judgment upon the ac-
tions of others. However, it does not
prohibit the just estimation of the
character of others by their deeds.
X. The Compensatlona of Right Liv-
ing (v. 88).
The one who gives freely of money,
loves sincerely, makes the Golden Rule
the standard of his life, shows mercy
and kindness to others, and refrains
from Impugning the motives of other*
will be fully rewarded In kind. God
will see to It that there be no ion.
HOME-SEWING TIME IS NEAR;
GORGEOUS EVENING WRAPS

As to styling, the trend is toward
something clever and "different" from

expressed for short sleeves. Some of
the newest spring models Introduce

6822 DEATHS FROM

lected of children's diseases, and -one
of the most dangerous. There are 6,822
deaths reported In a single year in the
United States from this disease. There
Is no cure for whooping cough; it usu-
ally runs its course, but relief can be
given and its duration shortened. A
few drops of Dr. Drake's Olessco will
relieve the most violent paroxysms of
coughing, and given regularly It will
