LESSON FOR MAY 3
THE PRODIGAL SON.
LESSON TEXT-T.ulto 15:11-32.
nOT.riRNT TR5TT"T will nrloo Mil e-n
to .my father, and will say' unto him, I
Father, I have sinned against heaven, and
In thy sight." Luke 15:18.
The parables of Jesus are marvels'
of unity and condensation, yet no nec
essary detail Is omitted. This, per
haps hlB most famous, Is no excep
tion even though -It does carry a dou
ble lesson. Who thinks of the older
' brother when this story Is mentioned?"
Though designated the "Story of tho
Prodigal," wo need to remind dur
selves that the word "prodigal" never
once occurs in the story. The open
ing sentence speaks of a father and
of two sons. It Is really tho parable
of a perfect father, the unveiling of
tho true heart of God. Against that
background Is set oft. a self-centered
son lacking in natural affection. Also
alongside the wayward son is the mis
erly, selfish one who lacked all tho
g00(T qualities of his brother, but who
was truly a wanderer and out of har
mony with God the Father. In the
background we bco the citizens of
the far country who helped this young
Jew to his place of want, famine and
degradation'. Remember, it is our
Lord speaking to Jaws. When the
Gentiles of the far country sent him,
to feed swine they Insulted him 'by
compelling him to get his living
through an occupation instinctively
First Fruit of Sin.
The father makes equal' partition
"divided unto them." (V. 12) though
neither son had a right to demand a
partition of his estate. At the bot
tom of the son's request was a desire
to have his own way to be Independ
ent of God. He did not. go away from
home at pnee, though his heart was
already In the "far country."
I. Into the Far Country, vv. 13-16.
Fun is the first fruit of sin, and that
the son readily found so long as his
money lasted (Heb. It: 25). But tho
consequences followed closely on its
trail, for when he had "spent all" he
began to be In "want." There are
many attractive things about this
young man, but those qualities were
perverted, they lacked control, they
were good servants but bad task
masters. It is not always physical,
temporal want that comes to the sin
ner, there are deeper and more in
tense longings soul want and soul
hunger. These always come to the
soul away from God. Being In want
doeB not' mean that a man's will has
been Bubdued. Some prodigals in the
most abject temporal need are as
proud as Lucifer, and boast of their
rebellion. So he "Joined himself to a
citizen of the country." He did not
belong there the citizen did. He was
set to the most degrading task im
aginable for a Jew feeding swine.
Like a Lost Sheep.
II. The Home Coming, w. 17-24.
The first step was for the son to stop
and really think. That is where sal
vation always begins in thinking. He
knew he was lost, e. g., out of adjust
ment, in the wrong place, out of his
element and like the loat sheep,
"ready to die." He saw his condi
tion, money gone, friends gone, hogs
for companions, no food for his sus
tenance. "He saw his value. "He was
more Important than the servants of
his father's home. He saw his fath-j
ers love, already manifested In what
had been given him and we fain would
believe that when he left home he
had the father's urgent plea to re
turn. He saw a way to escape from
his present position. All of this after
ho "came to himself." Before that,
Impenitent, he was morally Insane,
now he has reasoned. Isa. 1:18. With
his reasoning also came the deter-1
mination to make a full confession.
"I will say unto him," not alone con
fess his need but the fact that Jie had
Binned. This is the only wy for a
sinner to come to God, Ps. 32:3-5;
I John 1;9; Lulco 18; 11-14. Ho did
not stop with resolving but "ho arose
and came to his father," v. 20. He ex
pected, to apply for a servant's posi
tion, but never had the opportunity
for the father saw him "a great way
oft" and "ran and fell on his neck and
kissed him." Notice the kiss of recon
ciliation, was given before he even had
a chance to confess. In his confes
sion his first thought is that he bad
Bfnned against God and then against
bis earthly father. The father had
pot once forgotten him; ho "had com
passion" even though the son was un
merciful to himself and to all of his
loved ones. Tho father kissed him
before ho was washed or otherwise
'" Neither of tho sons are perfect but
he who uttered tho parable was him
self the true son of the father. He
never departed from his father,
wasted his father's substance, nor
brought discredit upon' his name.
Jesus was in full sympathy with his
father's heart for he welcomed the
wandering publicans and sinners to
himself, took the Journey Into the far
country to find the wanderers and to
bring them home. Christ's mission
was to bring many "sons to glory"
(Heb. a: 10), which means restoring
the' wanderer and fulfilling In Mm the
Krfectaesf of Mnsklp.

To Be, To Blossom And To Die.
In memory of Alice Carroll, who
died April 14, 1914 aged 19 years:
The fairest flowers, earliest plucked
Soonest withered lie.
Thus with our human uowers
To be, to blossom and to die.
The loveliest, brightest summer day
Seems shortest, happiest hours
Are soonest spent gone from us
As with the fragile flowers.
The choicest fruits fall soonest
In darkness He the glades
As the wondrous, radlent sunset
To dusky twilight fades
'Tls thus the Heavenly Gardner
Looks down upon His flowers
Sees one mSre flttlng, better
Transplants it to His bowers.
Why, should we loved ones murmur ?
She's with her father dear;
Our tender plant, we'll miss yflu
But we would not keep you here,
