LESSON FOR MARCH 14
SAUL GAINS HIS KINGDOM.
LESSON TEXT-I Samuel, chapter I.
GOLDEN TEXT-le that is slow to a
ger is better than the mighty. and go
that ruleth his spitit, than he that taketh
a city.-Prov. 16:32.
In order to repay Israel's victory un
der.Jepthah, Nahash the Ammonite de
manded the right eye of those besieged
in Jabesh in Gilead, knowing that the
left eye would b4 hid by their shields
pLnd they would thus be incapable of
warfare. For Israel to make any cov
enant with the Ammonites was con*
trary to God's commands (Ex. 23:32;
I. The Cry of abesh, vv. 1.3. This
event probably ogourred about a month
after the previous lesson. It was a
proud, haughty demand made of these
Israelites. Exhausted and hopeless,
they had offered to become servants in
order. to live. So today we frequejpt
ly find men willing to compromise
with the world and the devil, who only
hold, them in dei4sion and contempt.
(v. 2). Compromtising Christians are
always blind leaders of the blind (Matt.
16:14; 6:22). Tlie demand of Nahash
would also bring reproach upon Israel,
yet this same king afterwards showed
kindness to David (II Samuel 10:2).
History records that Ebiperor Basil
II actually sent. an army of 14,850
sightless men back to the king of Bul
garia, who died of grief and horror.
II. The Conquest of Ammon, -vv. 4
11. Nahash granted the request for
a seven days' respite. Here was Saul's
opportunity-wrongs to be righted and
people to be saved. Saul had held his
peaco-since beint anointed by Samuel,
employing his time in everyday toil
and duties (v. 6), for the messengers
did not find Saul at home idle. The
tidings of this insult were told to the
people who'lifted up their voices and
wept. (v. 4). The news of this threat
oned calamity reasched Saul's ears and
his conduct effectually put to silence
those "worthless fellows" wh' ' de
spised him and had brought no pres
ents at his anointing (10:27). Instead
of tears Saul is noved to deeds. Like
Cincinnatus and Israel Putnam, he'left
the plow to take up the sword. Saul
did not, in his own strength, under
take to relieve Jabesh, for "the Spirit
of God came upon him" (v. 6; see also
Judges 3:10; 11:29; 13:25; Luke 24:
49; Acts 10:38).. This moved Saul to
anger, not alone at such an evidence
of cruelty, but more at the contempt
Nahash had for God and his people.
Saul associated himself with Samuel,
the man of God, and summoned the na
tion of Israel to his side.
The Holy Spirit' gave Saul clear as
surance of a call fronm God, and1 he re
sponded with unquestioned faith
(Rom. 8:31). The people responded
witht great rapidity, for the fear of
God came upon them also. We have
the good news of a better deliverance
from .a more subtle -foe to proclaim
in the present age. They all resorted
to Bezek, west of the Jordan. The
messengers returned 'bearing a affes
sage having two meanings (v. J0), and
that helped to keep Nahash ignorant
of Saul's actjons, on the other side of
the river. Dividing his army into com
panies Saul attacked the enemy "in
the. morning watch," and, completely
overwhelmed them and put theni to
rout. As the Ammonites had refused
to show any mercy, they in turn were
judged unworthy of mercy (v, 11, see
also James .;,13; Matt. 7:2).
III. The Crowning of Saul, vv. 12.15.
Saul's victory'ho'impressed 'the people
that they demanded to know of Sam
uel who it was -that had refused him
as king, desiring to put them to death.
Saul showed his wisdom by not per
mitting such a course of actiouf. Many
today refuse God'a divinely appoin'ted
king who will ytet be glad to acknowl
edge him (TLuke 19:27; Phil. 2:10).
In the next place Saul did not claim
credit for the victory for, said he,
"The Lord hath wrought deliverance
in Israel" (v. 13 R. V.). All real vic
tories come from God (Ps. 44:4-8; I
Cor. 15:10). This was the true king
ly spirit. Saul reaped the reward of
his humility, his forbearance, cour
age and activity in the loyalty and
pridle of the people. Samuel gladly
shared in the success of Saul and led
the people to Gilgal for the crowning
ceremony. This was the place where
Israel had first encamped under the
leadership of Joshua and where thte
twelve stones frolet the river had been
set up as a testimony to God's real
pesence and deliverance.
Saul had natural and physical char
acteristics calculated to make him a
great and useful king--sefrestr'aint,
modesty, military invention and a ca
pacity for leadership.
lHe .was shrewd, patient and gener
lHe thtus stood on the threshold of'
his kingdom with the possIbilIties of
untold usefulness and blessing.
We are "kings and priests unto
God." He has ushered us into his
kingdom. Power, usefulness, influ
ence, helpfulness, victory eve" sin are
before us. "Napoleon said that his
nobility dated from Arcole and Maren
go. May ours date from the victories'
of love over the evil within us and in
the worl!d." "This is the victory that
overcometh the world, even.- our
faith'' (I John 5u4).

the su m of $3,Q99. .
When one Is thirty 'years of age,

had bought a new suit that very weeki
She had almost decided to lot it go

now, of course, there would be manY

Then the thought of Philip Bartoa
struck home to her, and she flushed
guiltily, and the mirage of new dresse.i
Philip was her only friend in the
big city. He had lived in the sam4f
rooming house for -three years, and'
they had been fast frjends all that
time. He had con~fded to her that if
he had a certain 'um he. could star

ly high price by the firm which em.'
ployed him at $2101 And he had fixed
-the exact suni at ,$8,000. Not that hi.
expected ever to, .have that amount.
But he had confided it to her as one
of those unrealisable dreams that'
come to all of us.
That was last Saturday night. Vior
a whole year thef had dined out each
Saturday night together.
Philip was two years younger than
herself. A mere boy, she considered
him. She prized their friendship the
more because she realized that some
day love would cbme into his life.
Poor, timid little Miss Raymond! No
love had ever entered hers, though
she was overflowing with charity and
affection for all humanity. She was
the sort of woman whom men seldom
apprize -at their true worth. When

a man does, he draws a rich prize in
the matrimonial lucky-bag.
Miss Raymond thought about th$
legacy the whole day at the office. Slie
was amused at the independence
which it seemed to give her. Slie
trembled no longer in fear of dismf.

"hands" were being laid off. She wap

ically in the glass. Whether it was
the new suit or whether it was t'h'e
legacy, undoubtedly she was beghi
ning to look quite pretty. Her faie
was flushed, and the excitement had
added a luster to her eyes and an y
pressiveness to her mouth. Miss Rey
mend. was beginning to feel quitle
proud of'her appearance.'.
And then the thought of Philip came
to her. An old maid of thirty! '
young man of twenty-eight! Wt
would not life mean to him if
could have that three thousand! '
She thought of the drab year. b

stretch before her, away and awayf,
Little Miss Raymond put her hea4
down upon her hands and cried.
"It isn't for him," she told herself
defiantly, as she sealed up the type
written letter. "It is for-the sake ef
the girl who is-is to take may place."
*And little Miss Raymond cied
again. Then, lest the thought of
selfish pleasure should make her re
pent, she went out quickly and
dropped the letter into the post office
Quixotic? Little Miss Raymond was
made that way. That was why she
had never succeeded in the stera
struggle of life.
*She listened from her room next
evening, which was Saturday, to hear
Philip's step on the stairs. She was
dressed-in the new suit, an unwar
ranted extravagance now-and wait
ing for him to take her te dinner.
Each paid for his own dinner. That
had been the first test of their comn
radeship, and he had always respect
ed her independence.
