Brasoisport and Brazoria County, Texas, Fri., September 11,1959 THE BRAZOSPOET FACTS Page 3 SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON GOD'S .CONCERN EOR ALL PEOPLE "the Lord is gBod to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made." - (Psalms 146:9,), LESSON Jonah This-lesson should help adults realize that God is concerned about every person, and that all who worship him must share this same concern. The Book of Jonah is Regarded by most scholars today as a parable, and it is likened to the parable of the good Samaritan. Jesus used the parable in-his teachings to iUustwte a spiritual truth. The purpose that faced the writer of the Book of Jonah was to awaken' the Israelites to their destiny as servants of God, In pursuing our scriptures for today we read of God's concern for his people, of his acceptance of their repentance, and his 'resulting leniency. We read o: his dealings with Jonah, his lesson to him of His infinite rriercy. • •< •-•-'• Jonah, called to be a prophet »nd go to Ninevah, stubbornly refused to accept his commission. He did not know and did not like the citizens of Ninevah. Because of his dislike for the people of Ninevah, 'Jonah re fused to go there. His' will clashed with the will of God because God has a deep con cern for all people, and Jona) did not. God has a concern for people outside the church, and often we do not; .

Yet wehav not been given an effective national program of education. Nor is the situation much better in the church. Despite all our leaders have done for us, ths, restrictions on academic eedom, "gag rules" Which ban ertain speakers from the cam- us, compulsory chapel, and so i. If we are not going to lose generation of youth from reli- on, we had better awake'and ry to understand what these udents are talking about; Those who are faithful totruth re often called upon to deliver unwelcomed and unpopular rords. American people do ot want to be told that Icohol is Just as damaging as ever, 'that peace cannot be cached by piling up armaments, that democracy cannot land surrounded by corrupt government, or that civilizatlort canrtot continue when public education*is kicked around because Ignorance is preferred to increased taxes. Christians must have the courage to say ihe unpopular thing. The hour In which we live may seem dark.' Mortal danger appears too often on the lAtipnal horizon. The mind of the world does not yet accept the fact that God has a con- cent for all people. Yet we need not be discouraged, for history continually reveals the fluence of a single man who sets out to support the right.

God's goodness' and mercy have followed us all the days of oar lives, if we but stop;to realize it, and fight the natural inclination to ukeall good things for granted. We have much for which to be thankful, in our daily lives, am how,- therefore, can we, like Jonah, fail to do His bidding? We can at least demonstrate a practical appreciation of ou blessings by teaching to others the concern He has for all his people, whether outside the Church or in it, (These comments sre based on outlines of the.
