For Boys and Girls.
Some of the w^ys they may learn
;o be happy in this life and the great
"uture. These are four v. ords of four
etters each, if you will learn them
md use them.
I will tell you what they are ! First
)ne is Love, second, Obey; third,
Oelp; fourth,. Pray. There are many
rreat thoughts we may gather from
;hem. Love is the first one you.learn
ed. It was. at mother's knee. Do you
ove her now as you did then? Our
parents are first in our love; do we
prove it by what we do for them?
?ow often do we make their eyes to
sparkle, their face to show the ex
pression of joy? Doubtless there are
nany days in the future of your life
vith opportunity every day to prove
;o them your love. The more you do
cor them, the more you will love to
lo, the more you will see to do.
If you love your parents you will
iot look for the pleasures of life for,
yourself alone, they must have a
mare. Brother, sister and friend, a
mare of your love.
There is One other you must not
forget to love, that is Christ, who
jave His life that we might live. He's
jone to prepare a place for those who
Then we come to the next one,
Dbey. This sounds like a hard word
;o bring in with love, but obedience is
me of the laws of heaven. Let us be
nn to learn it here. The boy ov girl
chat obeys is seldom reproved. Pa
rents and teachers count on you
when they want something done. You
idd to your parents' joy and happi
less. It will add to yours after a
while. Every one should learn to obey
Sod's commandments. God's word
ceaches us that it is better to obey
han to sacrifice.
The third one is Help. Everybody
:an tell what help means. The girl
md boy must learn to help in the
lome and then they can help each
ither. A joy comes into the life of
iveryone who helps a friend, a neigh
)or or an enemy, into the path of
ife. God wants our help each day.
Think once, twice and every time it
s your duty to help Him and^ all
vhom you come in contact with.
God expects you to help, the world
leeds your help, and the help you
rive to God and the world becomes
i joy in your own life, a reward for
fou in the great future.
Our last word is Pray. Do you
enow it's meaning? A poet gives the
