rontsor AVrury Thirty Abrahams Servant Ioo il to H iv n for Nourish 1oniul It Interesting Ser by ilev Taliiia e 1 Dr Talma ges sermon Sunday was Gen xxi 10 And God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water and she iveut and filled time bottle with water and gave the lad drink Morning breaks upon Ueersheba There is an early stir in the house of old Abraham There has been trouble among the domestics Hagar an as sistant in the household and her son a brisk lad of 1C years have become impudent and insolent and Sarah the mistress of the household puts her foot down very hard and says that they will have to leave the premises They are packing up now Abraham knowing that the journey before his servant and her son will be very long and across desolate places in the kindness of his heart sets about putting up some bread and a bottle with water in it It is a very plain lunch that Abraham provides but I warrant you there would have been enough of it had they not lost their way be with you said old Abraham as he gave the lunch to Ila ar and a good many charges as to how she should conduct the journey Ishmael the boy I suppose bounded iwny in tha morning light l ovs like a change Poor Ishmael He has no idea of the disasters that are ahead of him Hagar gives one long lingering look on the familiar place where she had spent so many happy lays each scene associated with the pride and joy of her heart young Ish maelThe scorching noon comes on The air is stifling and moves across the Jesert with insufferable suffocation ishmael the boy begins to complain and lies down but Hagar rouses him up saying nothing about her own weariness or the sweltering heat for mothers can endure anything Trudge trudge trudge Crossing the dead level jf the desert how wearily and slowly the miles slip A tamarind that seemed hours ago to stand only just a little ahead inviting travelers to come under its shadow now is as far off as ever or seemingly so Xight drops upon the desert and the travelers arc pillow less Ishmael very weary I suppose instantly falls asleep Hagar as the shadows of the night begin to lap over each other Ihsgar hugs her weary boy to her bosom and thinks of the fact that it is her fault that they are in the desert A star looks out and ever fall lag tear is kissed with a sparkle A wing of wind comes over the hot earth and lifts the locks from the fevered brow of the boy Hagar sleeps fitfully and in her own dreams travels over the weary day and half awakes her son by crying out in her sleep Ish mael Ishmael h r wAnt and Inca D God always I wv and And so they go on day after day and night after night for they have lost their way Xo path in time shifting sands no sign in the burning sky The sack empty of flour time water gone from the bottle What small she do As she puts her fainting Ishmacl under a stunted shrub of the arid plain she sees the bloodshot eye feels the hot hand and watches the blood bursting from the cracked tongue and there is a shriek in the desert of Beer sheba We shall die We shall die Now no mother was ever made strong enough to hear her son cry in vain for a drink Heretofore she had cheered her hoy by promising a speedy end of the journey and even smiled upon him when she felt desperately enough Now there is nothing to do but place him under a shrub and let him die She had thought that she would sit there and watch until the spirit of her boy would go away for ever and then she would breathe own life on his silent heart but as the boy begins to claw his tongue in agony of thirst and struggle in and begs his mother to slay him she can not endure the spectacle She puts him under a shrub and goes off a bowshot and begins to weep until all the desert seems sobbing and her cry strikes clear through the heavens and an angel of God comes out on a cloud and looks down upon the appalling grief and cries Hagar what aileth thee She looks up and she sees the angel pointing to a well of water where she fills the bottle for the lad Thank God Thank God I learn from this oriental scene in the first place what a sad thing it is when people do not know their place and get too proud for their Hagar was an assistant in that household but she wanted to rule there She ridiculed and jeered until her son Ishmael got the same tricks She dashed out her own happiness and threw Sarah into a great fret and if she had stayed much longer in that household sine would have upset calm Abrahams equilibrium My friends onehalf of the trouble in the world to day comes from the fact that people do not know their place or finding their place will not stay in it When we come into the world there is always a place ready for us A place for A place for Sarah A place for Hagar A place for Ishmael A place for you and a place for me Our first duty is to find our sphere our second is to keep it We may be born in a sphere far off from the one for which God finally intends us Six tus V was born on the low ground and was a swineherd God called him up to wave a scepter Ferguson spent his early days in looking after sheep God called him up to look after stars and be a shepherd watching the flocks of light on the hillsides of heaven Hogarth began by engraving pewter pots him to stand in the enchanted realm of a painter The shoemakers bench held Bloomfield for a little while but God raised him to sit in the chair of a philosopher and Christian scholar The soap boiler of London could not keep his son in that business for God had decided that Hawley to be one of the greatest astronomers of Eng1 land On the other hand we may be jorffio a sphere a little higher than that for which God intends us We born in a castle and play in a costly conservatory and feed highbred pointers and angle for gold fish in artificial ponds and be familiar with the princess yet God may better have fitted us for a carpenters shop or den tists forceps or a weavers shuttle or a blacksmiths forge The great thing is to find just the sphere for which God intended us and then to occupy sphere and occupy it forever distortion business Abraham Godraised vas maybe th t I h outer Here is a man God fashioned to make a plow There is a man God fashioned to make a constitution The man who makes the plow is just as honorable as the man who makes the constitution There is a woman who was made to fashion a robe and yonder isone in tended to be a que in and wear it It seems to me that in the one case as in the other lod appoints the sphere and the needle is just as respectable in His sight as the scepter I do not know but that the world would long ago have been saved if some of thc men out of the ministry were in it and sonic of those who are in it were out of it I really think that onehalf the be divided into two quar ters those who have not found their sphere and those who having found it are not willing to stay there How many are struggling for a position a little higher than that which God them The bondswoman wants to be mistress Hagar keeps crowding Sarah The small wheel of a watch beautifully went treading its golden to be the balance wheel and the sparrow with chagrin drops into the brook because it can not like the eagle cut a circle under the sun In the Lords army we all want to be brigadier generals The sloop says More mast more tonnage more can vas Oh that I were a topsail schoon er or a fullrigged brig or a Cunard steamer And so the world is filled with cries of discontent because we arc not willing to stay in the place where God put us and intended us to be My friends be not too proud to do anything God tells you to dofor the lack of a right disposition in this re spect the world is strewn ing Hagars and Ishmaels God has given each one of us a work to do You carry a scuttle of coal up that dark alley You distribute that tract You give 10000 to the missionary cause You for 15 years sit with chronic rheumatism display ing the beauty of Christian submis sion Whatever God calls you to whether it win hissing or huzza whether to walk under triumphal arch or lift the sot out of the ditch whether it be to preach on a Pentecost or It 11 some wanderer of the street of the mercy of the Christ of Mary Magdalene whether it be to weave a garland for a laughing child on a spring morning and call her a Mary Queen or to comb out the tangled locks of a waif of the street and cut up one of your old dresses to fit her out for the it and do it and do it right away Whether it be a crown or yoke do not fidget honors upon those who do their work and do their whole work and are contented in the sphere in which God has put them while there is wan dering and exile and desolation and wilderness for discontented Hagar and IshmaelAgain I find in this Oriental scene a lesson of sympathy with woman when she goes forth trudging in the desert What a great change it was for this Hagar There was the tent and all worldmay pathwaywants withwonder Christian sanctuarydo Everlasting pMIEisi intended the surroundings of Abrahams house beautiful and luxurious no doubt Now she is going out into tine hot sands of the desert Oh what a change it was And in our day we often wheel of fortune turn Here is one who lived in the very bright home of her father She had every thing possible to administer to her at the table music in the drawing room welcome at the door She is led forth into life by some one who can not appreciate her A dissipated soul comes and takes her out in the desert Cruelties blot out all the lights of that home circle Harsh words wear out her spirits The high hopes that shone out over the marriage altar while the ring was be ing set and the vows given and the benediction pronounced have all faded with the orange blossoms and there she is today broken hearted thinking of past joys and present desolation and coming anguish Hagar in the seethe some happinessplenty wilderness is think of anything that can be add ed to it For years there has not been the suggestion of a single trouble Bright and happy children fill the house with laughter and song Books to read Pictures to look at Lounges to rest on Cup of domestic joy full and running over Dark night drops Pillow hot Pulses flutter Eyes close And the foot whose wellknown the door sill brought the whole on the door sill again A long deep grief plowed all the of domestic lire Paradise lost Widowhood Hagar in the wilderness How often is it we see the weak arm of woman conscripted for this battle of the morning pale with exhausting work not half slept out with the slum bers of last night tragedies of written all over her face her lus treless eyes looking far ahead as though for the coming of some other trouble lien parents call her Mary or Bertha or Agnes on the day when they held her up to the font and the Christian minister sprinkled on the infants face the washings of a holy baptism Her name is now I hear it in the shuffle of the wornout shoes 1 see it in the figure of the faded calico I find it in the linea ments of the woebegone countenance Not Mary nor Bertha nor Agnes but Hagar in the wilderness May God have mercy upon woman in toils her struggles her hardships her deso and may the great heart of divine sympathy inclose men forever Again I find in this the fact that every mqther leads forth tremendous destinies You say isnt an unusual scene a mother leading her child by A great nation is to be nation so strong that it stands for thousands of years against all the of the world Egypt and Assyria thunder against it but in vain Gaulus brings

children Prayerless pa rents leading prayerless children Tluy go street along every highway Ilagar and Ish mael And while I pronounce their names it seems like tine moaning of the desert wind Ilagar
