LESSON FOR SEPTEMBER 6
THE GREAT COMMANDMENTS.
LESSON TEXT-Mark 12:28-44.
GOLDEN TEXT "Thou slialt love the
Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with
all thy soul, and with all thy strength,
and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor
as thyself." Luke 10:27.
This lesson considers a third ques
tion asked of our Lord; two others
In this connection we studied last
week. It was not so much a ques
tion of placing one commandment in
competition with another, but rather
which commandment most clearly
epitomizes or reveals the final prin
ciple in law. It was the business of
this scribe to know tho law and to
Interpret tho commandments. Jesus
in his reply quotes from Deut. 5:4,
and from Lev. 19:18, which are both
In a sense an exposition of the Deca
logue. Love the Basis.
I. The answer of Jesus, vv. 28-34.
The scribe's question seemed to be
quite specific and so tho Lord strikes
at once at the heart and by his quota
tion reveals to us the fact that the
principle which is tho Inspiration of
the law is that of love. In passing
we have here another illustration of
the master's ready use and knowledge
four-fold summary. Man must love
God with (a) the heart, e. g., In sin
cerity and uprightness; (b) with the
soul, with the warmth of tho emo
tions, and the feelings; (c) "with all
thy mind," tho Intellect, not as a blind
devotee; (d) with "strength," viz.,
with intensity of service, with energy.
"To love God with all the heart and
soul and mind and strength is to have
Bupreme desire for and delight in
God's glory, making everything else
second to that." This statement is
but half, for the complement of our
love of God Is to love man. Man
created in God's Image waa "so loved"
by God that he gave his son (John
3:16); man can do not less and must
express that love in service to others.
To fall In the first Is to break the
greatest of the commandments and
therefore to be guilty of all, Rom.
Human and Deity.
II. The question of Jesus, w. 35
37. Our Lord's question In return
was a Messianic one and he grounds
his argument on the 110th Psalm, a
Messianic one. Jesus is inferior to
David as his son according to the
flesh but superior to him as lord of
the kingdom of which David himself
Is a subject and not the sovereign.
Christ is both human and deity; his
kingdom is spiritual and earthly sov
ereigns are honored If they are his
III. The teaching of Jesus, vv. 38
40. The word "doctrine" In verse 38
is translated "teaching" In the re
Vision. These words of warning are
full of solemn significance. The
scribes, and they have their Imitators
today, sought the places of prefer
ment, the seats of honor in the syna
gogue and the chief places at tho
feasts. The motive that governed
them was a selfish one. They de-
, voured widows' houses, and sought to
cover their covetousness and dishon
esty by long prayers and a pretense
of piety. This brought upon them tho
"greater condemnation," Matt. 24:51.
Law and love is here again In con
trast. Law must become life.
IV. Tho view of Jesus, vv. 41-44.
Jesus had one look of love and com
passion for his friends and the needy
and another that was exceedingly ter
rible for his enemies. Thus It was as
a. master teacher that he saw right
at hand an illustration for his les
son, an application of the truth in tho.
case of the widow who gave out of her
penury and because of her love for
God, supporting these carping, selfish I
scribes. She had two mites (about
fourth-fifths of a cent) and might have I
withheld one except that the rabbis
forbade the offering of a single one.
JJer love, however, went beyond the
"tenth" and she gave "all," therefore
In proportion to their means she "cast
more than they all," see n Cor. 8:12.
Offerings are needed still for the
Lord's work. Jesus is "over against .
the treasure" and "sees" who It la'
that "casts in" how much they cast
and the motive behind the gift. The
master's standard of a commendable
offering Is not according to our super
ilulty, but our deficiency, not what
'Will be missed hut what of sacrifice
and in proportion thereto. Not to
please man, but God. Read II Cor.
8:1-3. Our Lord'B valuation of gifts
cast into the treasury remains for all
time tho true standard of measure
ment The love of God unifies a man. Wo
love because he first loved us, and
In proportion as we truly apprehend
bis love, all that we have of heart,
life, strength and mind, yea, our
whole nature will unite in love. It Is
this which unifies society. To love
him that begets Is to love him that is
begotten. To love God Is to love man
and to keep all of the divine com
mands that concern our relations to

A MAN OF FAITH
By HAROLD CARTER.
When Billy Durham waa at school
he was the butt of his companions,
Decause ne believed everytning tnai
he was told. As he grew older, how
ever, instead of jeering at him the fel
lows used to go to him with their con
fidences. He had that captivating
frankness and belief In human nature
that, when genuine, proved irresistible.
It was just the same when Billy was
discharged from the insurance office.
Mr. Somers, the manager, had been or
dered to lay off some of the employes.
He thought Billy was not cut out for
the Insurance business. "You'd better
lay off for a while and look round to
see If you don't llnd something more
suited to you," he said.
He never expected to see Billy again, I
but, five weeks later, Billy was found
at his desk one morning. "I didn't see
anything I like better, so I came back," (
he said. Billy stayed and was pro-
moted to be assistant manager by old
Hayden, who had taken a fancy to the ;
Old Rayden, being a millionaire, was
not the man to pick up an insignificant
subordinate and take him into his
home. However, Billy had been to the
Madison avenue mansion once or twice
with important papers. He bad seen
Elsie Rayden thero and had at once
fallen In love with her. With his sim
plicity of mind, It did not occur to him
that there would be any difficulty
about marrying her, provided he could
make her love him. I
That summer he brooded over his
work, hoping against hope that the
occasion would arise for him to go to
Mr. Rayden's house again. But he was
not summoned, and presently he dis
covered through the papers that Eleie
Itayden was spending July at Atlan
Billy took his vacation In July and
went there. He met Miss Rayden on
the board walk and, taking off his hat,
reminded her who he was. Elsie Ray
den was at once amused and inter-
ested. he was tired of society life,
and she had begun to suspect that she
waa In love with Mr. Gerald Lomax,
wno uaa oeen reponea m ine newupu i
pers several times as paying ner at
The result of that conversation was
that Billy was Invited to call at the
hotel. Miss Elsie had a plan in mind.
She wanted to discover whether Ger
ald loved her, by the simple process oi
trying to make him jealous.
She timed Billy's second visit so that
It should coincide with Gerald s regu
lar Sunday trip to Atlantic City, and
for an hour the two men sized each
other up, while Miss Elsie chatted
amiably and Impartially with each In
turn, and both together.
Billy was the first to leave and some
thing which might have been called a
"scene" in less exalted circles hap
pened afterward. The next time Billy
called Miss Elsie was more encour
aging than ever. That wae the begin
ning of a w eek of ecstacy for the young
fellow. They went for long country
walks, they swam and drove, they pat
ronized theaters and all the amuse
ments. And presently the inevitable
society Item found Its way into the
New York papers.
"Rumor has it that Mr. William
Durham and Miss Elsie Rayden will
shortly announce their engagement."
Billy read the Item and turned white
with Indignation. He went straight to
Miss Elsie's hotel and slapped the
newspaper down on the table before
"I don't know what cur put that In,"
he said, "but I want to make It true.
Will you, dear?"
"My dear boy, you don't under
etand," she said. "I am engaged to
marry Mr. Gerald Lomax."
Billy stared at her Incredulously.
"But you have gone for walks and
drives with me," he exclaimed.
"O, go away, Billy, and learn some
thing of the world," Miss Elsie an
Billy went away to learn. ' Then she
regretted her words. The fact was
that she had received a letter from her j
father that morning demanding point
edly to know "what she was doing '
fooling with one of his clerks at At
lantic City." He also demanded that
ehe go home.
Elsie went home, and a hard week
followed. There was Mr. Lomax, ex-j
postulating and Indignant, and her fa-
ther, furious at the publicity. Three
days later, when Billy got back to his '
lodgings, he found a letter stating that
ms services would no longer be re
quired in the Insurance office.
Now ninety-nine men out of a hun
dred would have whistled and gone out
j to look for a job. But Billy's absurd
faith took him right round to the
' house on Madison avenue. As Mr.
Rayden had no expectation of seeing
him again, ho had left no Instructions
with the butler concerning him. So
Billy, walking in, found himself in the
midst of an animated family scene.
"I beg your pardon," sold Billy to
Mr. Rayden. "It's about that letter,
you know. Why don't you want me?
Isn't there some misunderstanding
"Yes, there has been a misunder
standing," growled Mr. Rayden, who,
being a self-made man, had not much
tact. "I misunderstood your sense of
honor when you went to Atlantic City
and got my daughter talked about."
"But I wanted to I mean, i O,
Elsie, won't you think It over?" stam
And Elsie did.
