Murray, took for his.tcxt Matt, vi, 33: "Seek
i'e first the kingdom of God and his right-

you " He spoke. In part, as follows:
"Human na.ure Is called upon to assert
Its dignity, to accomplish and to declare Its
true value by giving itself primarily to tho
eternall) bAt nnd highest. Me.e negatives
are dispensed with, and a positive task of
the highest and mou ennob.ing order ls set
for the soul of man to ac-'on.plish. No
doubt Is expressed concerning his ability to
achieve thedeslied end. The reward Is cer
tain. He shad have the spiritual good of
God's kligdom. and In addition a due meas
