There is a gloomy and passive way of

You are exiieutlng prosperity, and I am
determined, so far as I have any thing to do
wltn It, that you shnll not be disappointed,
and therefore I propose, as God may help
ne this morning, to project uiion your at
tention a new element of success. You
will have In the business firm, frugality,
patience, industry, perseverance, economy
a very strong business Arm, but there
needs to be one momber added, migh'ier
than them all, and not a silent partner
either the one Introduced by my text:
"i.odllness, which is proHtable unto all
things, having the promiso of tho lifo that
now Is as well as of that which Is to come."
I suppose you are all willing to admit that
godliness is Important in Its eternal rela
tions; but perhaps somo of you say : "All I
want Is an opportunity to say a prayer be
fore I die, and all wilt be well. " There are
a great many people who suppose that if
they can finally got snfuly out of this world,
they will have exhausted tho entire advan
togo oi our noiy religion. Thoy tulle ai
though religion were a mnro nod of recog
nition which we are to give to tho Lord
Jesus on tho way up to a heavnly mansion ;
as though It were an admission ticket, of no
use except to give In at the dnor of Ilenven
And thorc aro thousands of pooplo who have
great admiration for a religion of tho shroud,
and a religion of tho celUn, and a religion of

who have no approclutinn of a religion for
the bank, for the farm, for the factory, for
the warehouse, for tho jeweler's shop, for
the brokor's odlco. Now, while I would not
throw any slur on a pnst-nwrtom religion, I
want this morning, and on tbe first eanbath
of the new year, to caiogizo an ante-mortem

you livo will be of no uso to you when vou

having the promise of the Ufa that now is
as well as of that which Is to come." And I
have always notlc-d that when the grace Is
very low in a man's heart he talks a great
deal In prayer-meetings about deaths, and
tbout coffins, and about graves, and about
churchyards. 1 have noticed that the
ealthy Christian, the man who is living
near to uod and Is on tne straight road to
Heaven, is full of jubilant satisfaction and
talks about the dutlos of this life, under
standing well that If God helps him to live
right ho. will help him to d-le right.
Now, iu the first place, I remark that god.
Ilneu is good for a man's physical health. I
no noi mean to say mat it will restore a
broken-down constitution, or drive rheuma
tism from the limbs, or neuralgia from the
templos, or pleurisy from the side; but I do
mean to say that it gives one such habits
and puts one in such condition as is most
favorable for physical health. That I be
lieve, and that I avow. Everybody knows
thnt buoyancy of spirit is good physical ad'
vantage. Gloom, nnrest, dojectlon are at
war with every pulsation of the heart, and
with every resniration of the lungs. It
lowers the vitality, It slackens tbe circula
tion, while exhilaration of spirit pours the
very balm of heaven through all the cur
rents of life. The aonse of Insecurity
which sometimes hovers over an un regen
erate man, or pounces upon him with the
blast of ton thousand t rum pots of terror, la
most depleting and most exhausting, while
tbe feeling that all things are working to
gether for my good now, and for my ever
lasting welfare, is conducive to physical
You will observe that godliness Induces
Industry, which is the foundation of good
health. There is no law of hygiene that
will keep a buy man well. Plourisy will
stab him. erysipelas will burn blm, Jaundice
will discolor him, gout will cripple him and
the Intelligent phynlrlan will not prescribe
antiseptle or febrifuge, or anodyne, but
saws and bamnvsrs, and yardsticks and
crowbars and pickaxes. There is no such
thing as good physical condition, without
positive work of some kind, although you
shonld sleep on down of swan, or ride in
carriage of softest upholstery, or have on
yourtable all the luxuries that were poured
from tne wine vats of Ispahan orJShlrax.
Our religion says: "Away to the bank!
away to tho field I away to the shop I away
to the factory) do something that will en
list all the energies of your body, mind and
out" ''Diligent In business, fervent in
spirit, serving the Lord;" while upon the
bare back of the Idler and the drone cornea
down the sharp lasb of the apostle as he
says: "If any man will not work, nollher
shall he eat,"
O, how Important In this day, when so
much is said about anatomy and physiology
and therapeutics, and som new style of
medicine is ever and anon springing upon
the world, that you should understand that
the highest sohool of medicine Is tbe school
of Christ, which declares that "Uodllnese la
profitable unto all things, having tbe prom
ise of the life that now la as woll as of that
which Is to oome." So If you start out two
men in the world with equal physical
health, and then one of them shall got the
religion of tbe Lord Jesus Christ In bis
heart, and tbe other shall not get It, the one
who becomes a son of tbe Lord Almighty
will Uve the longer. "With long life wUl I
eatlsfy thee, and show thee my salvation."
Again I remark that godliness is good for
the intellect I know some have supposed
that Just aa soon as a man enter into the
Christian life, his intellect goes into a be-
dwarfing process. So far from that, religion
will give new brtllancy to the Intellect, new
strength to the Imagination, new foroe to
the will and wider swing to all tbe Intellect
gal faculties. Chriatianlty is the great cen
tral fire at which Philosophy has lighted it
brightest torch. . Tbe religion of tho Lord
Jesus Christ is the fonntaln out of whtob
learning ha dipped its ' clearest draught.
Tbe Helicon poured from under the throne
of God dear as crystal. Religion has given
new energy to Poesy, weeping in Dr.
Young's "Night Thoughts," teaching In
Cowper's 'Task," flaming In Charles Wes
ley's hymns, and rushing with archangelio
splendor through Milton's "Paradise Lost"
The religion of Jesus Christ has hung In
studio and in gallery of art and In Vatican,
the best pictures Titian's "Assumption,"
Raphael's 'Transfiguration," Ruben's "Do
soent from the Cross," Claude's "Burning
Bush," and Angolo's ' Last Judgment,"
Religion has made tho best musio of the
world Haydn's "Creation," Handel's
"Messiah," Mozart's "Kequlom." Is It pos
sible that a religion which bui'ds such inde
structible monuments and which lifts its
ensign on the highest promontorlos of
worldly power, can have any effect upon a
man's intellect but elevation and enlarge
ment! - Now, I commend godliness as the
best mental discipline better than belles
lettres to purify tne taxte, better than
mathematics to harness the mind to all
intricacy and elaboration, better than logio
to marshal the intellectuul forces for onset
and victory. It will go with Hugh Miller
and show him tho footprints of the Creator
In the red sandstone. It will go with tbe
botanist and show him Celestial glories en
camiwd under theourtuln of the water Illy.
It will go with the astronomer on tbe great
height where Uod shepherds tbe great flocf
of worlds that wander on the hills of
Heaven answering His voice as be calls
them all by their names.
Again I remark, that godliness Is profit
able for one's disposition. Lord Ashley, be
fore he went Into a great battle, was heard
to offer this prayer: "O, Lord. I shall bo
very busy to-day; if I forget Thee, forget
me not." With such a Christian disposition
as that, a man Is independent of all circum
stances. Our piety will have a tinge of our
natural temperament. It a man be cross and
sour and fretful naturally, after he becomes
a Christian he will. always have to bo armed
against the rebellion of those evil Inclina
tions; but religion has tamed the wildest
nature; it has turned fretfulness Into grati
tude, despondency into good cheer, and thoso
who were bard and ungovernable and un
sompromlsing have been modo pliable and
oonclliatory. Good resolution, reformatory
effort, will not effect the change. It takes
a mightier arm and a mightier hand to bend
evil habits than the band that bent tbe bow
of Ulysus, and It takes a stronger lance
than over held the buffalo on the prairie.
A man can not go forth with any human
weapons and contend successfully against
these Titans, armed with uptorn mountains.
But you have known men into whose spirit
the Influence the gospel of Christ came, un
til their disposition was entirely changed.
l3o It was with two merchants In New York.
Thoy wore very antagonistic. They had
dono all they could to injure each other.
Thoy wore In the samo lino of business. One
of the merchants was converted to God.
Having been converted he asked tho Lord
to teach him how to bear himself toward
thatbudness antagonist, and he was im
pressed with the fact that it was bis duty
when a customer asked for certain kinds of
goods which lie hod not, but which ho knew
bis opponent bad, to reccommend him to go
to that store. I suppose thnt Is about the
hardest thing a man could do; but being
thoroughly converted to Uod, he resolved
to do that very thing, and Doing asked for a
certuin kind of goods which he had not, he
said: "You go to such and such-a store,
and you will get It," Aftor awhile, mer
hant number two found thoso customers
omlng so sent, and he found also tnat mer
chant number one bod boon brought to God,
and he sought the same religion. Now they
are good frlonds and g.iod neighbors, the
grace of God entirely changing their dispo
sition. "O," snys some one, "I have a rough, Jag
ged, impotuous nature, and religion can'i do
anything for me I" Do you know that Man
tin Luther and Robert Nowton, aud Richard '
Baxter were impetuous, all-consuming nv
turcs, yot the grace of Uod turned them into
the mlgbtioat usefulncssl A manufacturer
cares but very little for a stream that slow
ly runs through the meadow, but a strong
torrent that leaps from rock to rock, and
rushes with mad enorgy through tho valley
and out toward tbe sea. Along that rlvor
you will find fluttering shuttles and grind
ing mill and flashing water-wheel. And
a nature tho swiftest, tho most rugged and
the most tremendous, that is the nature
God turns iuto the greatest usefulness. O,
how many thorn are who have been pug
nacious, and bard to please, and Irascible,
and more bothered about the mote In their
neighbor'a eye than about the beam-like
ship timber in their own eye, who have been
entirely changed by the gruro of Ood, and
have found out that "Godliness Is profita
ble for the llf o that no w is as well as for tbe
lifo which Is to come."
Again 1 remark that religion Is good for a
man's worldly business. I know the general
theory is the more business the less religion,
the more religion the less business. Not so
thought Dr. Hana In bis "Biography of a
Christian Merchant," when be says: "He
grew In grace tbe last six years of his life
more than at any time in his life; during
tboso six years be had mora business crowd
ing him than at any other time." In other
words, the more worldly business a man
has, the more opportunity to serve God.
Does religion exhilarate or retard worldly
business! Is the practical question for you
to discuss. Does it hang like a mortgage
over the farm! Is it a bad debt on the
ledger! Is it a lien against tho estate! Does
it crowd the door through which customer
come for broadcloths and silks! Now, re
ligion will hinder your business If it be a
bad buslnosa, or It It be a good business
wrongly conducted. If you tell lies behind
the counter, If you uso fulao weights and
measures, if you put sand in sugar, and
boot-juice in vinegar, and lard in butter, and
sell for one thing that which is another
thing, then religion will Interfere with that
business; but a lawful business, lawfully
conducted, will Dud the religion of the Lord
Jesus Christ lu mlghtL-sl auxiliary.
ttellglon will give an equipoise of spirit.
It will keep you from ebu.lltlons ot temper
and you know a great many fine busi
nesses have been blown to atoms by bad
temper it will keep you from worrlmeot
about frequont loss, it will keep you indus
trious and prompt, it will keep you back
from squandering and from dissipation, it
will give yon a kindness of spirit which will
be easily distinguished from that mere store
courtesy which shake hand violently with
you, asking about the health of your fami
ly when there is no anxiety to know wheth
er your child is well or alok I but the anxie
ty Is to know how many dozen cam brio
pockot handkerchiefs you will take and pay
cash down. It will prepare you for the
practical dutle of every -day life. I do not
mean to say that religion will make us finan
cially rich, but I do say that it will assure
us of a comfortable sustenance at the start,
comfortable subsistence all tbe way
through, and It will help us to direct the
bank, to manage the traffic, to conduct all
our business matter anJ to make the most
Insignificant affair of our life a matter ot
vast importance glorified by Christian prin
ciple. In New York City tboro was a merchant
hard in his dealings with his fellows, who
had written over his bauklng house, or his
counting-house room: ,
"No compromise." Then urban so me mer
chant got in a crisis and went down no
fault of his, but a conjunction of evil cir
cumstancesand ail tbe other merchant
were willing to compromise they would
take seventy-five cents on the dollar, or fifty
cents, or twenty cents coming to this msn
last of all, he said: "No compromise; I'll
take 100 cents on the dollar, and 1 can afford
to wait" Well, the wheel turned, and after
a while that man was in a crisis of business,
ana ne sent out bis sgenu to compromise,
and the agents said to the merchants:
"Will you take fifty cents on the
dollarl "No." "Will you take any thing!"
"We'll take 100 cents on the doUsr. No
compromise." And tbe man who wrote
that inscription over his counting-house
door died in destitution. O. we want more
of the kindness of the gospel and tbe spirit
of love in our business enterprises I How
many young men have found in the religion
of Jesus Christ a practical help! How
many are there in this bouse to-day who
could tetttfy out of their own experience
that godlln. ss is profitable for the II fe that
now Is. There were times in their business
career when they went here for help, and
there for help, and yonder for help, and got
no help until thoy knelt before tho Lord
crying for bis deliverance, and the Lord
In a bank not far from onr great metropo
lis a village bank an ofllcor could not bal
ance his accounts. He had worked at them
duy after day, night al ter night, and he was
was sick nigh unto doath as a result. He
knew that he had not tuken one farthing
from that bank, but somehow, for some
reason Inscrutable then, tho accounts
wouldn't balunce. Tho time rolled on. and
the morning of the ,duy whon . the books
should pass under the inspection of the
other officers arrived, and ho folt himself in
awful poril, conscious of h'.i own Integrity
but unable to prove that Integrity. That
morning ho went to the bunk early, and he
knelt down before God and told the whole
story of bis mental anguish, and be said:
"O Lord, 1 have dono right; I have
preserved my integrity, but hero I
am about to be overthrown unless
Thou should come to my rescue Lord, de
liver me." And for ono hour ho continued
t he prayer before Ood, and then he rose and
went to an old blotter that he had forgotten
all about. He openeJ It, and there lay a.
ahoet of figures which he only needed to
add to another line ot figures some Hoe of
figures be had forgottuu, and knew not
where he had laid them an I tno socounts
were balanced, and the Lord de'lvored him.
You are an infidel If you do not believe it.
The Lord delivered blm. God answered his
prayer, as ho will answer your prayer, O
man of business, in ovory crisis when you
come to him. Now, if this be so, thon I am
persuaded, as you are, of the fact that the
vast majority of Christians do not fully teat
the value of their religion. Thoy aro like a
farmer In California, with flfteou thousand
acres of good wheat land, and culturlng
only a quarter of an aero. Why do you not
go forth and make tbe religion of Jesus
Cbrist a practical affair, every day of your
business life and all this year, beginning
now, and to-morrow morning putting into
practical effect this holy religion and dem
onstrating In your lifo thnt godliness is
profitable hero as woll as hereafter!
How can you get along without this re
ligion! Is your physical health so good you
do not waut this divlno tonic! Is your
mind so clear, so. vat, so comprehensive
that you do not want this divine Inspiration I
Is your worldly buslneiA so thoroughly es
tablished that you havo no uso for that re
ligion which has been ttn help and dolivor-
l.anoe of tens of tnousauds ot men In crises
of worldly troublul And if what I have
said this morning is true, then you see
what a fatul blunder It Is whon a man ad
journs to life's expir.itlon tho uses of re
ligion. A man wno potp-mM religion to
lxty ycurs of age gets ro!l.,:on Arty years
too late. He may got into tho kingdom of
U.h by fiual repentance, but what can com
pensuie blm for whole lifetime unallovl
atedand uncomforteil! You want religion
to-day in tho training of that child. You
will want roligiou to-morrow in dealing with
that wostern customer. You wanted religion
yesterday to curb your temper. Is your arm
strong enough to beat your way through the
floods! Can you without being encased in
the mull of God's eternal help go forth amid
tbe assault of all boll's sharpshooters! Can
you walk slono across these crumbling
graves and amid thoso gaping earthquakes!
Can you, waterlogged and maat-slilv-
erod. outlive the gale! O, how many
there are who, postponing the religion
of Jesus Christ, have plunged Into mistakes
they never could correct, although they
lived eighty year after, and like serpents
crushed under cart-whoo'.s, dragging their
mauled bodies under tho rocks to die; so
these men havo fallen undor the wheel of
awful calamity, crushed hero, destroyed for
ever, while a vast mullitude of other have
taken tho religion of Jesus Christ Into every
day life, and first. In practical business af
fairs, and secondly, on the throne of t eaven
ly triumph, have Illustrated, while angels
looked on and a universe approved, the
glorious truth that "Godliness I profitable
unto all things, having the promiso of the
life which now is a well as of that which is
. AMERICAN CLERGYMEN.
Not a Kroillte, II.it far More I'roOtabt
Than Their Kngllah Hrrlliren.
Borne time ago I was talking with an En
glish clergyman who lamented the fact that
a a rule American clergymen are not
scholarly men In the English sense of the
word. Doubtless this is true in a measure,
alttv ugh we can point to American clergy
men w ho are tho peers of any English clergy
men In profound scholarship. But we must
admit that the exigencies of lire In this
country have made It impoasible for tho
averago clergyman to become a deep scholar.
Our clergy have had to spread themselves
over too much ground and do too many
thing to make the e'egant leisure of the
soholar possible. They have had to do bard
and rough pioneer work, and in a vast num
ber of cases have had to vex their souls
with knotty questions of financial ways and
means unknown to the bonnfldal ways and
of Europe. And In doing the work which
was before them I think they have shown a
power and an aptltudo that a more bookish
set of men never could have shown.
It Is not so long since one of the sorest
waya in reaching a mitre In the English
church was to edit a Greek play. Such a
state of thing haa never existed in this
sountry, and it Is to be hoped It never will
exist, even though It should give us a
learned ministry. The ability tothrow new
light on the dative case in Greek and the
discovery of a now shade of meaning for
some particle are doubtloit Important ac
complishments in th-lr way. but tbey would
be of no value, to an American clergyman,
whose erudition, np matter how profound it
may be, must be directed into practical
channels and used for the more uplifting of
the people. IChurch Time.
HoW many take a wrong view of II 'e
and waste their nerrons svstem In endeav
ring to accumulate wealth without think
fng of the present bapplnt sa tbey are throw
