By WILMAM T. ELLIS. "CX*itrMt Between Faithfulness and Matthew XXV: 14-SO. U DON'T seem to be very popular with this crowd," remarked a man to the gatekeeper at a railway station, as he tendered his ticket to be punched. There had been a' delay in trains, and the impatient passengers had been noisily criticising toe gateman, as he eventually let them through one at a time, punching the ticket of each. "My business is to be popular here, terfcely replied the unperturbed of- ftcrlal, touching the company's name 00. his cap. He knew whose approval really counted, and so could disregard the crowd's clamor. That incident opens the door to a leason upon life, taken from one of the final discourses of Jesus, which is the present lesson. Its first significance is that of accountability to authority. "He that judgeth me Is : the Lord." The parable portrays a > landlord as going away, and apportioning his goods to the stewardship of three servants, in the proportion of flve, two and one, to each man according to his ability. The first two did their job well, and were reward- eft at pay day; the third was an incompetent whiner, and got his desserts at the final reckoning.

Fourth Lutheran, Rev. Raymond C. Shindler, pastor—Preaching at 10.45 and at 7.30 by the pastor. Morning subject, "Those Who Hunger and Thirst After Righteousness." Chll- stewards in the parable had had a long loaf, on pay; and thought he could square himself at last by glib explanations and criticisms. He had nit got hold of the main idea that he was only an employe, a custodian; and that his first and supreme loyalty •waa to his master. He was a rebel against authority, a sort of early bolshevik, profuse in grievances and poor in performance. The idea of personal accountability did not bulk Isirge In his thinking. That Day of Reckoning. Now the central lesson of this les- aj*n— the reason why Jesus told th4 —is that life is not a go-as-you- excursion, but a serious busi- of stewardship. Man is held to ount: There is a day of reckon- inescapably ahead. Human capa- Utles are delegated responsibilities. r powers are our only to use , at Ule will of a Higher Authority. God leaves much to man — awesomely rthich— and sometimes His account- g seems long delayed; for the final frdict upon us is no snap-judgment. i>t eventually and Inevitably, man, steward, must answer to God, the , for the use he has made of his life and its powers. This Is the solemn message that Jesus taught. A He stood beneath the shadow of discoursing on ulti- deavor at 6.30 p. m. Endeavor at 7 p. m. dren's story sermon, Knocker." Evening e near cross, ite things. of us who waste first-class J lltles upon second-rate pursuits, find this lesson rather disturbing. For the ringing word which dimes resounding from the Parable it that there is One who holds all men a final accounting, not only for 'they' have done, but also for they might have done. . A "Success" Story. Slesus was an individualist; socially- ninded, of course, and Himself the stfurce and power of human brother- Mod; but, nevertheless, a teacher of individual responsibility. Capacities t powers, He recognized, differ with onalities. In the story told by :, which is our lesson, one servant a flve-talent man, one was a tiro-talent man and the third was a He-talent man. His parable did not Ik five-talent results from the one- Bent man: but it did require fidelity B'd achievement from all. The least Kdowed had no more reason for fai C e > ning.

To Invest one's life the following questions should asked: Is it big enough? Will it demand all of my abilities? Will it satisfy all of the longings? Will it last? Will it make me better? Will I grow in it? Will it pay? In what coin will it pay? When I close my life will I be content? Will •• - — Then with a great „„ and adventure give yourself to the one great purpose in life.

He' said that It was like a man who was going to another country and called his servants and delivered unto them his goods. To one he gave Ive talents, which Is equal to $10,000 to another he gave two talents, which is equal to $4,000, and to the third he gave one talent, which Is equal to (2,000. "Each was given according to Us several ability." The man with the'five talents invested and earned five more, doubling his money. The man with two talents did likewise. The man with only one talent hid it in the earth. After a long time the lord of the servants returned and rewarded the man with the" flve talents and the man with the two talents by setting them over many things. But the man with the one talent said, 'Lord I was afraid and hid thy talent in the earth. Here is thine own." And the lord answered, "You oughtest therefore to have invested the money. Take it from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For until every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance, but from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken away. And cast ye out the unprofitable servant Into the outer darkness." Thus shall it be when the Son of Man will come in His glory. Suggestions: First — Distribution of talents, according to ability. Second- Judgment Is in proportion to opportunity. Judgment is after ample time. Third—The one talent man is likely to be tempted to bury his one talent because he does not have flve. Fourth—The flve talent men may be tempted, not to bury them, but to misuse them. Fifth—The one talent man had the wrong idea of God^nd it affected his reaction in life. Sixth—It is the one talent men who carry the burdens of life. Seventh—Unemployment of men Is dangerous to themselves and to society. Eighth—Undeveloped talents, powers, resources, are tragic. ttlCFORMED ' ^ . Trinity feefottWed, feorftef of Btghth street and Seventh fcveftue, Rev. Jfttnes M.

He was voluble with reasons why he had not made good. That is characteristic of the type. The non-doers are the chronic complainera and critics. They can tell, at great length, what is wrong with circumstances, and how hard fate is toward them. It is easier ^o render an excuse than a deed. Clear as the peerless Story-teller could make it, shines forth the message from the parable of the talents, that every man is the steward of his own life and powers, and that he will be held accountable for faithfulness and efficiency. No whining, whimpering self-pity will excuse the failures. SEVEN SENTENCE SEBMONS. It takes live fish to swim up stream.—Old Proberb.
