GOLDEN TEXT-In all things I gave you an example, that so laboring ye ought to help the weak, and to remember th» ·words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself eald, it is more blessed to give than to receive --Acts 20 35. Paul's letters to the church In Corinth are a divine commentary upon church government. A stricter adherence to the principles enunciated and a clearer interpretation of those principles to the church of Jesus Christ would save us from many errors and heartaches. In this rich and populous nation the lessor for consideration today is most vital, for it concerns one of the fundamental principles which underly the progress of mankind as well as the kingdom of God. 1. Cheerful Giving (vv. 1-7). One of the dangers assailing the early Christian church was that of division between the Jewish and Gentile believers. One party suggested that the Gentiles ought to have a closer union with the Jews; on the other hand, certain Gentiles could not see the necessity of the Jewish ceremonial, and la this Paul agreed with them, and therefore they refused to assume any unnecessary burden. The great feasts at Jerusalem were crowded with pilgrims, both Jews and Jewish Christians. The pilgrims were often very poor, and fatigue must have fostered diseases. Here then was a place where a work of ministry to the needy might be done with the money which had been systematically gathered through the weekly contributions of Christian believers. Note how skillfully Paul appealed to these Corinthians. He recognizes their forwardness of mind and their zeal (vv. 1 and 2, Am. B.). Most delicately doea he compliment them upon their work, for, Bald he, "I glory in your behalf. 1 ' He desired their collections to be a matter of bounty, and not of covetousness or extortion. Paul's principle of giving is that it shall be n matter of free and beneficent gifts, not a matter of covetous greed; not a quid pro quo. He says that they who sow sparingly shall reap sparingly. II. The Results of Giving (TV. 8-15). The law of reaping according to the seed we sow and of reaping In propor- 1 tlon to the quality and quantity of thi ! seed sown is also to be supplemented i by the law of the necessity of systematic giving (See I Cor. 16:2). One of the sweetest and most cheerful and inspiring promises of the Bible is found in verse 8 of this section, ;'God Is able." He is able to make all grace abound, and he does this "to the bountiful giver." Nothing more surely limits the measure of grace that we receive than our penurious, niggardly ghlng (Phil. 4:19 and context). This ghing of grace Is "In order that ye always having nil sufficiency in all things may abound unto every good work." God's abundant grace is bestowed upon us that we may work for others, and live abounding, sufficient lives in everything. How poor Indeed our lives must appear when measured by the standard of this verse. Literally this is "hilarious giving." God loves the full-souled, hilarious giver who gives time nnd money. Such giving Is like unto God's giving, who gave his only begotten son. If we sow as God (provides, he will multiply the s»sed for sowing and Increase the fruits of our righteousness. If we do not sow, he will cease to supply. This liberality will work through as to others and thanksgiving to God on the part of those who receive (v. 11, K. V.). Such giving abounds to his honor nnd glory through the many thanksgivings which it will occasion (Heb. 33:15). The more we give, the more God will increase our power to give, and in this way we will he enriched In everything unto all liberality (Prov. 31:24-25). The church in Jerusalem, when the saints of Corinth had given proof by the ministration to their need, would glorify God for the ohrcHrncc of the saints in Corinth and their confession of the gospel of Christ, and also for the liberality of their contribution unto them (v. 13, R. V.). They would repay their generosity with prayer (v. 14, R, V.) nnd they would long after them by reason of the grace of God which was in them. Paul's words about our giving with thanksgiving to God for his unspeakable gift--(See Ch. 8:9) the unspeakable gift of God, Jesus Christ (John 8:16; Rotn. 8:82)--is an exhortation to us. Nothing should so move us to give to others as the thought of what God has given of his very best and 3earcs.t for us. The Sunday school, as the training Bchool of the church, ought to give Instruction not nlone in salvation trutli tnd life teaching, but nlso iu systematic giving. Train the children early to give to the church a portion of their substance, and they will learn to love ,t and support It in tho years to come. Persistent 'practice is the secret of mastery here as* In everything else. We say: "When a rich man dies ho leaves all his wealth behind him." True, but it is also true that we change Into the currency of the country to which we nre going the gifts which we nave clven here.

That is what friends of Miss Marie Anlghto Peary, daughter of Admiral Robert Peary, the arctic explorer, aie asking since she hfes announced her intention to become an aviatrix. · Certain it is Mis Peary feels the call of the north where she was born during the second of Lieut. Peary's expeditions in search of the pole. Because she \vas i Dura in Greenland she was called AmghtoT vT hi7h is Eskimo for "Sno\\ Baby." According to Miss Peary she will learn to fly In order to desist her father in establishing an aerial coast patrol with stations along the Atlantic and Pacific MAMFAWGHTO - , Her friends believe the "daughter of the arctic" has an ulterior motive, however, and predict she will attempt to penetrate the practically unexploisd regions of the north.
