Chicago TribunV Oil for "the lamp of your life" WHEN a child, the writer lived in a small town. One of her daily duties was to clean and replenish the oil lamps commonly in use at that time. There were varied types the student lamp for reading, the great hanging lamp over the dining table, the reflector for the kitchen, and tiny ones tor the night. Because the family was large, and light was required in many rooms, many lamps had to be kept trimmed and bright, and a careful mother expected thoroughness and thoughtful attention to detail. In spite of the exacting nature of the work, however, the writer always felt a glow of Inner satisfaction when at night the lamps were lighted and Bhe saw the flame straight and true across a trim wick, and the light shining cheeringly through a sparkling glass chimney. Mary Baker Eddy, in a letter to a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, said, "May mercy and truth go before you: may the lamp of your life continually be full of oil" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 151). In her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 592), is this definition: OIL. Consecration; charity; gentleness; prayer; heavenly inspiration." With the lamp of our life continually filled with such oil, our good works would give glory to God. As we endeavor to make practical this definition of oil, we find that consecration holds within Itself diligence, constancy, and unswerving sincerity of purpose. Faltering, intermittent attempts to be or do good, spasmodic or hesitating efforts toward right thinking are not satisfying. The practice of true thinking requires regularity and constantcy, devotion and enthusiasm. Charity, or love, walks hand in hand with the obedience which Includes promptness, alertness, attention, good humor, and willingness to serve; it implies repentance accompanied by reformation. Gentleness is closely associated with kindness, docility, nobility; and true greatness is gentle. It is a persuasive, rather than a belligerent factor, and allays strife. Dally living affords the opportunity to practice the love which true prayer affirms, for, to be wholly effective, prayer must be accompanied by constructive action. Prayer brings to one that heavenly inspiration which illumines the path of life with love. Realizing the present worth of these spiritual qualities, we find, sometimes to our surprise, that they cannot be hoarded, but must be shared. In the familiar story of the widow who appealed to Ellsha, when the creditor was about to take her two sons to be bondmen, it is interesting to note that the prophet turned her attention to that whicn she already possessed "a pot of oil" (II Kings He bade her borrow "empty vessels." She was not to ask for oil, but for empty vessels, "not a few," and she herself was to fill them to the brim from the supply which she was to prove unlimited. Quietly, unostentatiously, behind closed doors, the record tells us, "she poured out." In times of discouragement, grief, lack, shall we not close the door on the nagging, unreal arguments, and go forth to pour into some empty, cheerless, lonely hour in a neighbor's routine, the riches of understanding, compassion, forgiveness, and love? There are many empty moments in human experience which we may fill with the realization of the truth of being. Recompense to exceed the immediate need is made manifest as we unselSshly turn the oil of joy and gratitude into seemingly dark, barren, dreary thoughts in our daily contacts in business and at home. The wise Christian turns consciously, constantly, to the source of all good for strength, healtti, happiness. He keeps close to God, 'on- Landon's Is Typical Kansas Family I 1 If, m- y'N, yS-i if I 1 "ffi Hi ph 1 1 r. -wL rTi rH i HOLLAND NEWS Mr. and Mrs. O. S.

At times when like the foolish virgins we forget to equip our thoughts and be ready, let us not relax into self-condemnation, but humbly, meekly, grow into obedience, industry, alertness to duty, resolving each day to keep the lamp of life continually filled with the oil of "consecration; charity; gentleness: prayer; heavenly inspiration." As we abide in the Christ, Truth, the reward is sure.
