LESSON FOR AUGUST 9
THE BARREN FIG TREE AND THE
LESSON TEXT-Mark 11(12-33.
GOLDEN TEXT "By their fruits y
ihall know them." Matt 7:20.
Event crowds fast upon the heels of
event during the days of thla most
tragic week In all the history of the
world. Temperance means restraint
and a constralnlngly proper use of God
given appetites and privileges, hence
the significance of this lesson as em
phasizing the principles of temper
ance. I. Sealing, vv. 12-14. The day fol
lowing his triumphal entry into Jeru
salem Jesus and his disciples Journeyed
from Bethany, his abiding place, each
night, into the city. Seeing leaves
upon the fig trees, he had a right
to look for fruit, for the fruit of that
tr?e comesbefore the foliage. Dut
none Is found, and Jesus seals its
barrenness. His act was a parable
In action, Hosea 10:1. Profession had
superseded possession, and Israel Is
therefore to be judged, set aside, un
til thp day when they Bhall look upon
hlro whom they have pierced.
Cleansed the Temple.
II. Cleansing, vv. 15-19. Entering
the familiar scenes of the city and
tomplo, whence the hosannas had
echoed so loudly the day previous,
JesUB saw its desecration and degrada
tion. Outwardly a delight, It was in
wardly deceitful, "a den of robbers,"
and his anger waxed hot. Everything
he saw and banished was In some way
connected with the temple worship.
Even so the most holy things created
by the wisdom of a loving God may be
come tho instruments of the most des
picable degradation. Ostensibly in
the name of religion these temple mer
chants" were In reality ministering to
self and private gain. As at the
beginning of his ministry so again
Jesus exercised his authority and
cleansed tho temple from Its pollution
and for a time (v. 10) guarded it
Jtrom further desecration.
The temperance application at this
point Is very clear. Appetite, men
tal or physical, Is a God given faculty,
but must be kept within control. Prop
erly used they are a delight, a bless
ing to the man and his friends. Al
lowed to rule and appetites are terrif
ic task masters. Purify the fountain
of a man's heart, govern his motive
and the stream of his acts will bless
all, himself included.
III. Forgiving, vv. 20-25. The next
day on the way from Bethany to Je
rusalem they again passed the fig
tree and it was withered. The disci
pjes marveled at the swift execution
of his curse and Peter calls attention
to it, v. 21, Matt. 21:12, 20. In reply
Jesus again emphasizes the lesson,
"Have faith In God." This does not
mean that this is an, explanation of
how he withered the tree, but rather
why it had died. Israel was placing
Its trust elsewhere than in God, and
therefore withers from the "roots up
ward." Notice that the root Is not
blasted, and a beautiful tree will again
blossom forth from tho living root.
So Israol shall once again spring up
Into a new and fruitful nation, Isa.
27:6. Jesus' teaching by this tree is
an illustration of wherein Israel had
failed. They had not faith in God.
Faith can remove mountains, and no
difficulty can hinder those who have
faith in God, Mark 9:23. Faith grows
upon the word, Rom. 10:7, yet love is
greater, I Cor. 13:2. If we really de
sire the things we pray for, we ''shall
have them." We not only expect but
go beyond in our petition and count
as ours the things asked for. The
lack of a forgiving spirit will effect
ually shut us out from God.
IV. Challenged, vv. 27-33. Upon
again entering the city and the tem
ple, there came to Jesus the chief
priests, scribes and elders who chal
lenged the authority by which ho,
wrought these things, undoubtedly re
ferring to his triumphal entry and to
his cleansing of the temple. His
reply is a counter challenge concern
ing the baptism of John. For at least
two years John had been dead and
his voice silent with a probable for
getfulness on the part of these men,
and a decreasing Influence of his mes
sage upon their lives. Yet the ques
tion of Jesus had projected power as
he brought John back to them with
this question as to his authority, "was
It from heaven, or of men?" That
there was keen sarcasm and cold loglo
embodied in his question is revealed
by the recorded dilemma of his ene
mies, TV. 31, 32.
This entire passage deals with tho
responsibility of privilege. Particu
larly is this epitomized In the para
ble of the fig tree. Privilege Is em
phasized in that the tree was planted
in the vineyard of Its owner, It lived
off of his possessions. Its simple re
sponsibility was to bear fruit. la
spite of the patience of the owner and
the privilege of its surroundings It
porishe'd. The advantage of Godly
parents, of Christian society and the
heritage of the noblo martyrs and
saints of the church will not save that
.man or woman who. "hi a name toi
Mro but Is dead." ' ' j

Do the right thing at the right time.
Act quickly in time of danger.
In time of kidney danger Doan's
Kidney Pills are most effective.
Plenty of evidence of their worth.
Mrs. A. Elmer, Water St., Batavla,
Ohio, says: "Four years ago one of the
family was all run down and suffered
almost constantly from kidney trouble.
We became alarmed. At times for
several days he could hardly get around
the house. His back was so stiff and
lame that he could hardly bend to tie
his shoes and when he sat down, he
couldn't get up. He couldn't rest
well at night and had to get up every
little while, owing to kidney weakness.
The kidney secretions were scanty and
disordered. He had but little ambi
tion and he couldn't eat. When he got
up in the morning he felt tired and
his head ached badly. He doctored
for some time, but got no better and
was about discouraged when a friend
told him to try Doan's Kidney Pills.
We got a box for him and in a few days
after using them, he felt much better.
Five boxes made him as well as ever
and he was ablo to look after his work.
He can now rest well and get up in
morning feeling line. We think Doan's
Kidney Pills are a Godsend to those
who need a kidney remedy."
