Hall In N Y Ob server CHOOSE God Dora Unreasonable Commands tint Sets Before U Facta The Bible does not impose upon us arbitrary and unreasonable commands It sets before us facts and invites us to decide with enthusiasm for one al ternative or the God will have no lukewarm service In view of the awful temptations and the noble opportunities with which every life abounds it says to every man who has ears to hear Choose A glance at any concordance says the Sunday School Times will show how often the Bible presents us with the thought that God makes choices Choice is one of the highest of the rational nature and the divine command to choose such a command as was urged by Moses and Joshua by Christ and Paul by teachers and leaders who have the everlasting importance of lifes a command can no man It assumes that we are rational beings who were not made to be driven but who can exam decide for ourselves The power to choose which lifts us above the brutes is a power that we exercise all too seldom Most lives are neither conspicuous successes nor brilliant failures just because men so seldom arrest themselves and make same deliberate resolve The mistake which blights so many lives is not that they make a definite choice of evil but that they never choose at all Too do men look alternatives honestly in the face They do not choose drift You could almost count the fingers of your two hands all the men you know who have ever made some great and solemn choice which has seriously shaped their subsequent career Howmany could tell why they are in this trade or profession and not in that in this church and notin that We are where we are often simply our parents or some other of the powers that be put us there So far that is right we must receive our start in life from others But as we love God and our own souls we must not stand there we mustrlearn choose for ourselves and not drift into the other world with the helplessness of the beasts that perish Numberless things of the highest moment were determined for us before ever we saw the light We did not choose our parents our family our country our language our religion our social station the sphere within which our friendships are possible or by which our education is limited We stand as it were within a charmed circle across which we often feel we cannot step If we move at all it is only like the prisoner to walk to and fro and round and round Yet God has to made us that it is in our power to choose the greatest things Our path may sometimes seem to be tracked out for us before aver we begin lifes we may seem to be sternly com passd about by necessity yet Gods word to every man is Choose And woe to him who stops his ears and himself to borne onward nearer and nearer to a goal which he has never once looked straight in the face Nor need our choice be a blind one It U to be made in Use light of Our ex God asks no man to choose without giving Him facts to deter line his choice We cannot look over t

how your life has been molded by Divine fingers how the disappoint ment which a few years ago you felt of happiness which would have been forever sealed had God then given you own foolish way Do you not feel that the bereavement which seemed to bury your own heart in the grave of your dear dead has brought you after many days a peace and even a quiet joy which you never knew before Your past is written nIl over with the finger of God it is in the light of all that that you are to make your choice The Gad who bids you choose is the God who helps you to choose who From our mothers And still Is ours today And the tim to choose is today Time has no meaning for God for Him who is and was and is to be there is no yesterda and no tomorrow But we are creatures of time A hundred years ago we were not in another hundred years we shall not be not at least in the visible world taking part in its social or political affairs nor in the visible church sharing her struggles and aspirations We look ing as we have been faithful or unfaith ful to the best that we knew Our future may fill us with hope or despair according to our temper of our use or misuse of the past But of the past and of the future we are not masters we command nothing but the present The past is past the future is Gods the present alone is ours We cannot choose in the past it is gone and with it all power of modifying it by the free exercise of our will We cannot choose in the future we may never see the day to which we post pone our decision some future VIe shall never see The pres ent only is the time of choice It is often said that most men live in the present In one sense that is true in another sense it would be nearer the truth to say that few men really live in the present in any pro found sense of the word live at all The old man lives proverbially in the past with its memories of the good old times the young man lives in the when the toils and hardships of the present have won for him means and leisure We live in any day and every day but the day that is ours the day that is is so hard to realize the infinite value of the present day The past which wethink to be so fair as it lies in the golden light of memory was once the present Did we think it fair then The future whose rosy beckons us across the years will one day be the present Shall we think it so radiant then Xo sane man would dream of despising the pleasures of memory or hope but the present with its clamant opportuni ties and its solemn responsibilities ought to be as inspiring a force in our lives as the past with its memories or the future with its hopes The pres ent which we think so commonplace will some day be a past which we shall probably think beautiful Why should we not think it beautiful now This day holds in its bosom the memories of the past and the hopes of the future But it is greater than the future and the past for we have it but we have not them We then who are alive this day breathing Gods air looking up to His Heaven have still the pres ent in our hands therefore let us RPIERCtS MEDICAL DISCOVERYFOR BBOODLIVERLUNGS I r stomach I lIves upforyou arms wayWith maykindle certainly future

Reserves come like a thief in the night The indecision of today cripples the resolution of tomorrow It is always today with God said Origen but it is not always today with us Therefore while it is called today let us harden not our hearts but choose If we refuse to enter now info the beautiful house in which Christ is longing to spread His table before us there may come a time when the door will be shut The importance of choice is obvious the time to choose is today But what are we to choose The path of service We will serve the Lord The noblest and the rarest choice is the choice of service and the wisest service is the service of the highest and best The only choice on which anything really vital ever depends is the choice of that which we shall serve Serve something we must We were born to serve Day by day we have humbly to serve Natures great and unerring laws or she would sweep us out of existence and hour by hour in the problems that cross our path we are serving God and Christ or our not God or Christ then No man is so profoundly the slave of himself as the man who thinks he if his own master Jesus choice was the choice of service He was in the form of God sharing His ineffable glory but He made Him self of no reputation and took upon Him the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of man and humbled Himself and became obedi ent unto death That was the hard rough path that Jesus deliberately chose for us men and for our salva tion and as the Father sent Him so He sends us on a mission of service to all whom we can help It is this that gives to Ills life I am among you as he that doth serve And it was He Himself who taught us that we serve Him by serving those who need our service Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my

States a move ment is now made to adopt a amendment which will provide for the submission to a popular vote of a proposition to prohibit the sale of liquor and it believed it will receive a large majority thereby extending prohibition even in those counties that have held against it In Tennessee there are now only a few counties where the sale of liquor is permitted and should the move ment in

rie Farmer Between recent cattle and corn crop prospects the steer is not a quantity in farming and feeding sections at pres ent and with the country in a selling humor there is ever prospect that even a S3 basis for a good class of steers will not stir up much of a demand from the small feeders Th immediate past always stands out a the strongest factor guiding the of a large number of people This is specially true if the results hav been such as exert a marked influence for good or ill Many doubtless have received such a bad scare that will not get over it until every bodj else gets ready to feed again and they will get another experience of high feeders and low fat steers Those who keep right at it will make some profit in the intervening years Asa rule we think it a wise plan to grow the steers Raise good ones and keep them going right along from the time they are little calves and market them at an early age Some years the price re ceived will be higher and some years lower but the average return for such cattle will be a very fair return for the food consumed and labor expend ed in their prod nction Climatic Cures The influence of climatic conditions in the cure of
