(the (Joldett (Eexl From Yesterday's Last Edition Mrs. F. S. Opperman To Give Book Reviews Before Culture Club Mark 2:27- -"And he said unto them. The tabbath was made tor man." Conserving the Sabbath for Man ·BRASS TACKS' ON THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON By DR. ALVPi E. BELL (The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic for Feb. 13 is Mark 2:2^-3 :i5. the Golden Text being Mark 2:27. "And he said unto them. The sabbath was made for man.") OUR LORD'S increasing popularity with tho people brought down upon him Increasing criticism from the Pharisees. Wo see this criticism at a (coat, then wo see it at a fast, now we see It again In the fields where his disciples shelled wheat and ate it on the sabbath day. Critics In the Field "It came to pass, that he was going- on the sabbath day through the gralnflelds; and his disciples began, as Uiey went, to pluck the ears. And the Pharisees sold unto him. Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?" This was a favorite battle ground on which our Lord's enemies chose to attack him, there being six such attacks recorded In the New Testament. But our Lord sanctioned no policy at nullification oC God's law which read, "Remember the sabbath day to keep It holy." He came not to destroy this law but to fulQll it. His Idea of the sabbath was that it was Intended to minister blessings to. mankind and not curse; it was to be blessing not a burden. God had not forbidden men to eat on the sabbath day. He made men to hunger on the sabbath day as on other days. The hunger of a healthy body, was therefore, sacred and might be satisfied on a sacred day without sacrilege. Jesus even cited the example of David In permitting his men. on a sabbath day, to take the sacred showbrcad of the house of God, and cat it, despite the fact that It was intended for the priests and not for the laymen. David's men were in Cod's service as truly as were the prleats, and they were, therefore, sacred as were the bread and the day, and there was no incongruity in the act. So it was with Jesus' disciples that day In the Rrainflcld. He clinched his teaching on this question by enunciating the fundamental principle. "The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath, so that the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath." God made Institutions like the sabbath, governments, and the like, for men, not men for them. How, in any given circumstance, the sabbath should be observed to minister the greatest spiritual blessing to man and the greatest glory to God, each one must determine for himself In the light of Cod's law and God's love, out of which grew the sabbath. Critics In tho Tabernacle "And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there who had his hand withered. And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him." These men /if withered souls had In their souls neither sympathy for suffering 1 humanity nor reverence for God. So Jesus, In utter contempt of the trap they had set for him "salth unto the man that had the withered hand. Stand forth." TAan of his murderous critics he Demanded, "Is it lawful on the sabbath day to do good, or to do harm to save a life or to kill? But they held their peace." Then, grieved at the hardening of their hearts, he healed the man. "And the Pharisees went out, and straightway with the Hcrodians took counsel against him. bow they might destroy him." o Thus they proved that all they had contended for was prompted not by love of God's day but by hatred of God's Son. The semi-monthly meeting of the Woman's Culture Club to be held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the club rooms at the Carnegie Free Library will be featured by book reviews to be given by Mrs. Fred S.
