Only Those Which Are Most Pre
cious Are Acceptable to Our
I One of the qualities which makes an
'Offering acceptable to God is that it
shall cost the worshiper something.
Offerings are not acceptable merely
."because they are expensive; they
must meet other conditions as well,
.but he who contemplates rendering
any worship or service to God may
?well count the co9t.
Before the temple was erected on
Mount Moriah that mountain was the
probable scene of two sacrifices made
to God. On that summit Abraham is
supposed to have built the altar on
which Isaac was about to be offered
when God interposed and accepted a
substitute. The father of the faith
ful as good as offered God that which
was most precious to him, and was
accepted as if that offering had been
made. Long after, David had occasion
to offer a burnt offering upon that
same mountain, and he uttered this
r?solution? "I will not offer unto the
liord that which costs me nothing."
Two persons were publicly com
mended by the Lord for their gifts,
and both of them were women. One
had cast into the treasury' of the
temple a very small sum, two mites,
which make a farthing. The other
had given a box of ointment which
was very precious. Both of them seem
to have given all they possessed.
The offerings were appreciated be
cause of their expensiveness, but
their expensiveness was not to bo es
timated only by their intrinsic value
Lack Proper Spirit in Giving.
The tendency of the present day
seems to be to offer to God that
which is costly. Members of the
church, in determining the amount
of money they shall devote to relig
ious purposes, generally fix upon a
sum that will not deprive them of a
single thing they care to have. They
contribute what they can give with
out feeling it. They expect God to
be satisfied, and even gratified with
an offering which costs them nothing.
That tendency is not confined to
financial offerings. Some have been
.known to excuse themselves for fre
quent absence from the morning
.church service by the fact that they
have occasion to be up late the night
before, and it is hard to rise early on
the Sabbath moaning when that is
the only morning of the week they
can sleep late. Some of them add a3 I
an additional reason that it is not!
easy to sit through a long service
when the sermon is not very interest
in,?:. They are absent from the eve
,nl:ng service and from the midweek
prayer service because In the press of
^business and social engagements they
want an evening to spend with their
families or for quiet reading. Their
excuses can be boiled down into one
simple statement: Because it would
cost them something, they will not
give these things to God. They for
get that the thing which costs noth
ing ?B not worth giving.
The reason why more of the mem
bers of the church are not willing to
be active in the Sabbath school is that
lt would cost them something in time
and effort and personal ease. The
reason why more are not willing to
seek out those who are careless and
try to win them back to the church
and a place in Its service is because
it costs too much. The fact must be
faced that the thing given to God at
small cost to the worshiper is held
cheaply by him who receives such
worship. The gift which he appreci
ates is the gift which means a real
sacrifice and expense io the giver.

KEEP THE LIGHT UNDIMMED
Christian Must Remember That Neg
lect May Work Injury to Him
self and Others.
Some years ago a steamer was com
ing up the Firth of Clyde on a stormy
night. Careful watch was kept and
all was going well, till suddenly a
dim, flickering light appeared right
over he^r:ybows. In another instant
the steamier went crashing into a ship
lying at'Vanchor. Several lives were
lost and ".much damage was done.
What was the cause of the accident?
.The anchored ship had allowed her
light to grow dim for want of oil. It
was only neglected. This Is like what
many. Christians do; they forget to
read the Word, to meditate upon it.
and to watch with prayer; therefore
their light is almost out, to the in
jury of themselves and others.
'Te are the light of the world."
Christ's churches are golden candle
sticks planted in a dark world. They
are to hold forth the word of life.
O Christians, watch and pray, and see
to it that your lamps are trimmed and
burning, and ye yourselves like unto
men that wait for their Lord.-The
Secularization of the Ministry.
The greatest peril that could befall
the country would be the seculariza
tion of the ministry. There is a com
pany of men who need to deliver their
full force upon the spiritual and eter
nal. The amelioration of hard physi
cal conditions is a good thing; but if
you secularize the clergy by absorb
ing their thought and energies in mere
matters of physical comfort or even
of cultural improvement, you will de
