Man and the Day of Rest
The Sunday of God's Purpose and the Sunday of Human Needs

Text: "Wherefore it 13 lawful to do good
on tno Sabbath day." Matt. 12:12. -
HE Sunday Ques
tion. It is not new.
It has agitated the
from the earliest
times. Jesus came
face to face with it
at the very begin
ning of His minis
try. He found the
day burdened and
distorted by the re
strictions which the
Scribes and Phari-
"" sees had placed
upon it. His effort was to deliver the
day from its unbearable exactions and
make it, as God intended, a real day of
rest The cold formalism of the letter
of the law had killed the freedom of the
Spirit of God in His relations to the day.
Jesus at once struck at the root of the
matter when He declared: "The Sab
bath was made for man, and not man for
the Sabbath." This statement was so
radically opposed to the Jewish idea of
the Sabbath as to arouse the bitterest
opposition. The Scribes and Pharisees
in their zeal for form and ceremony had
deified the Sabbath and made it some
thing for man to worship and serve.
Jesus corrected this error by declaring
that God had made the Sabbath day to
6erve the needs of man. Here, then, we
have the first and fundamental doctrine
in regard to the Sabbath day, or the day
of rest. The other great truth, as
Jesus went on to declare it, was that He
was Lord of the Sabbath. He was not
to be crowded out of the day as God,
His Father, had been, for they had
so filled the day with burdensome re-
etrictions and obligations that it had
become a religion of cold and lifeless
forms and exactions. And not only was
He Lord of the Sabbath day, but the law
of that day was one of positive and ac
tive goodness. "It is lawful to do good
on the Sabbath." Here, then, we have
before us the fundamentals of the Sab
bath day question: "The Sabbath made
for man." "Jesus, Lord of the Sabbath,"
and the law of the Sabbath, "do good.
HEN Jesus was on earth and en-
W deavoring to restore to its rightful
functions the day of rest which God had
established, it was the extreme of cere
monial restrictions and exactions which
robbed the day of its true spirit and pur
pose: but to-day the pendulum has
swung clear to the other side, and we
find that instead of the Puritanical type
of Sunday we have the "wide-open"
Sunday, the Sunday when liberal views,
indifference to God's claims, and love
of pleasure prevail. Instead of the bur
den of stern religious exactions, there
Is distracting and demoralizing free
dom in every-department in life. The
laziness and ease which keep from
church on Sunday morning; the Sunday
newspaper, the reading of which rele
gates the Bible to the dusty shelf; the
feasting and social functions; the pleas
ure ouungs, wnicn take tne whole or
part of the day; the rush of trains and
street cars; the grind of the wheels of
business; the din and pound of the work
shop. Instead of the prescribed Sab
bath s day journey of our Lord's day
which the hypocritical Pharisees would
not aiiow to be overstepped even to
minister to a suffering and needy crea
ture, we have the bicycle or automobile
run; the long street-car ride to visit
distant friends; the picnic in the park
or the country. In Jesus' day God was
crowded out of the Sabbath day by man's
superficial zeal in religious things; to
day, God is crowded out of the rest day
by man's utter forgetfulnesa or partial
forgetfulness of God's claims upon him
ana ms seeking the things and pleas
ures or the world, so that there is just
as much need of effort to redeem the
blessed rest day from the error and evil
wnicn crowd it as there was when
Jesus faced His bigoted critics and de
clared that the Sabbath was made for
man, that He was Lord of the Sabbath,
and that the law which was to govern
tne day was that of doing good, and the
same fundamental facts in regard to the
weekly rest day which have existed since
the foundation of the world, when God
rested on the seventh day and hallowed
it, exist to-day.
1 uiu iaci mat tne Christian world
observes the first day of the week
instead of the seventh as prescribed bv
iae mosaic law does not in the least
alter the great underlying purposes
uu oongations or the day. We have
not space here to develop the argu
ment that man, physically and spir-
nuaiiy, neeas one day In seven for
rest. It is not necessary for us to
recall how with the passing of the
Jewish dispensation in the rejection
and crucifixion of Christ and His
resurrection upon the first day of the
week and the establishment of the
church of the Gospel dispensation
upon the day of Pentecost, the Jewish
Sabbath ceased to be observed by the
Christians, who in its stead observed
Sunday, or the first day of the week
But whether the seventh-day Sab
bath of the Jews or the first-day Sun
day of the Christians, they both rest
upon foundation principles which are
identical, and unchanged and un
changeable. The day of rest was made
for man. Of that day Christ is still

great omigation of that day is that
of doing good. It is not our purpose
to discuss the question of whether the
seventh dy or the first day should be
observed, nor is It our purpose to
add to the great and confused discus
sion of what one can do and what one
ought not to do on Sunday. Christ
did not attempt to outline a list of
the cans and the can'ts for the day,
but He did call attention to certain
fundamental truths In regard to the
day, and these are unchanged and un
changeable, and they afford a sure
means of determining what one ought
to do and what one ought not to do

ing and obligations of the day when
Jesu3 attacked their false and unholy
ITH a Chicago university pro
fessor advocating Sunday base
ball, and other religious teachers and
preachers throughout the country at
tempting to determine what may law
fully be done on Sunday; with the
letting down of the bars in every di
rection and the shutting out of God
from the rest day by the distraction
of human plans and purposes, there is
need to turn from human thought and
reasoning and get near to Jesus,
where we may hear Him tell us again:
"The Sabbath was made for man, and
not man for the Sabbath; so that the
Son of man is Lord even of the Sab
bath." "It is lawful to do good on
the Sabbath day." Jesus' critics were
ready to argue with Him. And there
is just as eager willingness to-day to
enter into controversy over the Sun
day question. The punctilious Phari
sees in their bigotry and blindness
thought they were right on the ques
tion of the right observation of the
Sabbath day, and the liberalist of to
day, although he is on the other side
of the fence, as he reasons from his
human point of view, believes that he
is right. The Pharisees, with their
distorted ideas as to what constituted
work, asked: "Is it lawful to heal on
the Sabbath day?" Think of it!
"What blindness! And to-day with the
extreme of liberality reached in ref
erence to the question of Sunday ob
servance, and with human desire and
selfishness encroaching more and
more upon the Lord's day, we find
those who do not understand the real
purpose and obligations of the day
asking as foolish questions, and mak
ing as vital mistakes as did the
Pharisees. To the two extremists Je
sus says: "It is lawful (right) to do
good on the Sabbath day." Within the
scope of this simple and plain state
ment is comprehended the whole Sun
day question, and within its spirit and
meaning we find the practical demon
stration of the truth that the Sabbath
was made for man.
t ET us look at the circumstances sur
L rounding our text. It is the Sabbath
day, and Jesus has entered the syna
eoeue. His critics follow Him. There is
within the synagogue a man with a pal
sied and wasted arm. Jesus' attention
is directed at once to the sufferer. The
Pharisees, noting this, and divining His
purpose, ask the question to which our
text is the reply. But before He ren
ders the man the help he needs and an
swers their query, He asks them a few
simple and searching questions, which
lay bare their false position. "What
man shall there be of you, that shall have
one sheep, and if this fall into a pit on
the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold
on it, and lift it out? How much, then,
is a man of more value than a sheep!'
The restrictions of the Pharisaic law
might be overstepped in behalf of the
brute, which had an intrinsic value to
its owner, but it must be rigidly and ex
actly observed when It came to suffer
Ing man, who in God's sight was of in
finitely more value. And human life has
not ceased to be the cheapest thing in
the world in man s eyes, and this fact
is strikingly in evidence In connection
with the violation of the purpose and
spirit of Sunday, both as regards man's
treatment of -himself and as regards his
treatment of his fellowmen. The busi
ness man is wining to work ms clerks
seven days in the week, ana wnen tne
men are worn out, he can get more.
The railroad and the factory will put
their men through the perpetual grind,
and find more to fill their places when
they become inefficient and worked-out.
It is right to do good on the Sabbath day.
But man i3 doing evil when he fills
Sunday with the business and work of
the week day; when he lets the excesses
of pleasure and ease, and personal ambi
tions and desires, shut out ofthe day
all approach unto God, and all rest in His
LET us analyze Jesus' statement that
it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath
day. The doing of good Involves a triple
relationship: The relation of a man to
himself, to his God and to his fellowman.
Doing good cannot measure up to God's
standard of what goodness is, if any one
of these conditions is lacking. First of
all, then, man must consider himself In
reference to this Sunday question. What
should the dav bring to him, and wliat
of his own personality should he put into
the day? If the day of rest was insti
tuted for man, what is it that it should
bring to him in his physical and spirit
ual being? Is It not rest on the world
side, and growth Godward ? Every sev
enth day was to be a day of rest. It is de
clared of God that "in six days He made
Heaven and earth, the sea, and all that
in them is, and rested the seventh day:
wherefore the Lord blessed the Sab
bath day and hallowed it." But that it
does not mean the rest of inactivits and
aimless purpose is evident from what
Jesus declared, for, when He healed and
wrought good on the Sabbath day, He de
fended His actions when the Jews ac
cused Him of violating the command
ment of God in regard to the holy Sab
bath day by declaring that His Father
worked hitherto and He worked. The
rest which God purposed for man was not
the rest of laziness, nor was God pro
viding for a time when man could re
cover from the week of Indulgences and
excesses. And vet now many there are
who run riot in the direction of business
and pleasure during the week, because
they know there is a Sunday coming in
which they can obtain rest. How manv
make Saturday night the convenient sea
son of excesses of all varieties, because
they know that on the Sunday following
they can sleep and rest up the physicallv-
tired and wornout body. How many.
many Christians be It said to their
shame and confusion deliberately plan
the Saturday night social pleasure ard
outing, because thev know that on Sun
day they can sleep Iate But such rest
brings no blessing, save perhaps to the
lower physical nature. To the Chris
tian Saturday night ought to be the home
night, a far a possible, co that plan
ning and preparation for the Lord's day
to follow may be made. Rest such as
God intended should be found upon the
day of rest was that which took one from
the secular things of the week and gave
him a favorable opportunity to grow
towards the things of God. Growth Is
not Inaction, but implies the most vig
orous kind of vitality. This is what is
involved in the perfect realization of the
seventh dav of rest as relates to man's
own physical and spiritual welfare.
A ND in the second place, as regards
f man's relation to God on the day of
rest: There is a distinctive obligation
to God on the Sabbath day which no
other day of the week can - know. It
niriici on environment in which
X V- MM "
man's spiritual nature can properly de
velon and grow. To the degree to which
man recognizes this fact, to that extent
does he realize the blessings and bene
fits of the day of rest. The Sabbath day
la triven to man that God may have op
nnrtnnitr tn fnmp closer to him and
Kfttisfv the needs of his spiritual nature.
Some natures are so starved and dead to
a sense of God that they crowd bunuay
.,11 r ha th.ntrs nf the world, their
nleasures and ambitions, and are indif
ferent to the claims of God upon them
nr of their own need of Him. . Many
Phrtstians bv their worldliness, by al
lowing the natural man to predominate
and rule, fail to realize the blessing ol
the Lord's day. There must be a sep
aration from the world and the things
of the world in order that the way unto
God and His approach unto us may be
unobstructed. In the days of Nehemiah
when the people had grown careless as
to the Sabbath day and the day had
come to be pretty nearly like the other
days of the week, he shut the gates
against those who had been coming into
Jerusalem to buy and sell. He separated
the people of the city from the outside
influences which drew them away from
God, and to-day we need the same stern
and decisive action upon the part of
every individual Christian in shutting
the gates of his mind and heart against
the cares and thought and plans of the
secular week; there is need of shutting
out the activities of the natural man in
order that there may be growth and de
velonment Godward. This is essential
to well-doing on the Sabbath day.
the third place, well doing on the
Sabbath day Involves man's relation
to his fellowman. This raises a com
plexity of questions and problems which
only can be settled as light is received
from God, and His will and Spirit have
opportunity to operate freely throuj
one. "It is lawful to do good on the
Sabbath day," declares Jesus, and there
is apparently a vast deal of well doing
from man to man on the Sabbath day
which apparently receives the general
approval of man, but we dare to say
that some of it at least does not meet
the approval of God, for the well doing
does not reach any higher than man or
seek to go beyond the temporal physical
needs of man. Take your Bibles and
read all portions of the Gospels which
tell of Jesus' Sabbath day activities, and
what do we find? Jesus well doing as
it touched the physical sought to reach
the spiritual and lead to clearer under
standing of God and nearer approach
unto Him. Test your activities on the
Lord's day as those activities bring you
into touch with others and see what is
the underlying motive. Why do you do
this or fhat on the Sabbath day? Why
do you go to this or that place ? Why do
you make that call, or go on that jaunt
on the street cars to another part of the
city or country? Why do you arrange
that gathering of relatives or friends
at the festive board? What is your pur
pose in it all ? All that you do may in it
self be harmless and perfectly proper in
its rightful place. It may satisfy and
please your friends, and those with
whom you come in contact, but if It
does not satisfy the conditions which
God lavs down as the law of His day 3ou
have failed. It is lawful to do that good
on the Sabbath day which helps the one
to whom the good is done to a clearer
vision of God and a closer relationship
Sunday baseball, Sunday picnics,
Sunday pleasures and outings, Sun
day sociabilities and feasting can stand
the test of this triple-sided view of the
law of the Sabbath day, all right; but
if not, it is all wrong. The trouble with
people in arguing with themselves and
with others in regard to what they
rightfully may and rightfully may not
do on the Sabbath day is that they rea
son from human standpoints and with
conceptions of life which do not reach
beyond the present life. But if a ques
tion as regards to conduct on the Sab
bath day is to be settled rightfully and
finally it must be considered in rela
tion to himself, to his God and to his
fellowmen. Christians would not be so
troubled and anxious over this Sunday
question if they were moved by the pur
pose of doing good which actuated
Christ. He never found it difficult to
decide what He ought to do. He never
seemed to be troubled by the criticism
of those about Him, for the law of the
Sabbath day was being lived out in His
life. He wa3 doing good. It Involved
His relations to Himself, to His God and
to His fellowman, and this was the pur
pose of the day. It was the direction in
which the highest possibilities of the
day might be realized. Surely the Sab
bath day was made for man, but the
only pathway of realization of all the
blessed possibilities of that day is the
way which Jesus marked out. He is the
Lord of the Sabbath. He it is Who can
lead us. Do good on the Sabbath day
and test that good doing by your rela
tionship to yourself, to your God and to
your fellowman. Then the Sunday
question will be settled, at least as far
as you yourself are concerned, and this
will be a long step in the direction of
settling it for others.
Be constant, O happy soul, be con

thou dost not turn away, but persever

to God the most acceptable sacrifice.

ABOUT GUINEA FOWLS.
Points That Should Be Remembered
by All Who Are Eng-ag-ed In
Guinea fowls have dark colored flesb,
but it is very palatable.
Inbreeding results in rendering the
birds tender and reduces their size.
The young of birds given their free
dom are hardy and will follow their
mother as soon almost as they are out
of the shell; at least they are good
trampers after they are a day old. The
foung live on bugs and seeds discovered
tor them by the mothers.
In the early laying season the birds
will lay their eggs anywhere, and several
will deposit their eggs in the same local
ity. When about to sit they seek sep
aration and lay a dozen or more eggs in
a hidden nest, where they incubate them.
The guineas differ from common fowls
In that the males are as anxious about
the brood as is the hen, and helps take
?are of them during the day time, for
saking them at night.
Guinea hens and their broods forage
In a body, the old males helping to keep
up the laggards of the line. At night
each mother collects her own brood.
The young at a very early age learn to
roost in the trees, even before they can
reach the branches by flying. They half
fly and half run up the trunk of the tree.
Guinea eggs are very fertile, and a
large percentage of the birds hatched
live if they are permitted to run wild
with their mother.
Like the turkey, the guinea prefers
the open tree top to the secure poultry
IIott to Secure All the Returns That
Could Be Reasonably Expected
from Good Hens.
The following considerations for the
comfort of fowls and the convenience
of their caretaker should always be ob
served in the construction of a good
henhouse. In their natural state fowls
do not breed in large flocks, and they
never lay well in large flocks. No mat
ter how many hens one may keep, not
over 20 should be kept in one room, and
the henhouse should be divided into as
many compartments as is necessary tc
accommodate the flocks on this basis.
Moreover, the hens in these compart
ments should never be crowded. Six
square feet of floor space should be al
lowed for each hen intended to be kept
in the compartment. In caring for hens
they should be disturbed as little as
possible, if a large egg yield is desired.
It is, therefore, very important to build
A USEFUL HENHOUSE.
the house so that this can be accom
plished. The house should be built
lengthwise east and west and facing the
south. Along the north side a separate
passage for the attendant should ba
built and all the arrangements made
for caring for the fowls from this pas
sage. The nest boxes should project part
ly into the passage with a lid on top
on that side. Above the nests inside
the compartment should be a platform
with roosts above, separated from the
passage by a swinging door hinged at
the top. Below the nests there should
be slatwork large enough for the hens
to get their heads through easily. Just
outside this the troughs for soft food
and water are placed, so that the hen
are not disturbed by changing this, nor
by collecting the eggs or the droppings.
The floor of the henhouse should be of
wood covered by six or eight inches of
straw litter, into which the grain food
should be scattered. On the south side
of the henhouse the should be large,
square windows, with the dust boxes
directly under them, where the sunlight
can fall directly into the boxes. These
boxes should contain dry earth or ashes
or both with about a quarter of a pound
of dry sulphur mixed in. Every com
partment should contain a small box
full of shell making material such as
plaster, grit, oyster shells or pounded
broken crockery. Such an environment
supplemented by proper food and care
should produce all the returns that
could be reasonably expected or desired
from good hens. Prairie Farmer.
