Brother Pastor, ien't it worth while? Do not cheat yourself out of these by-products by failing to put yourself whole-heartedly into the plan. STEWARDSHIP. By Rev. A. D. McClure, D. D. There can be but one correct opin ion concerning the temporal posses sions in the hands of the children of God, and that is that they are the property of God, Who is the rightful owner and Who haB entrusted them to His children that they may have what is best for them, and those de pendent upon them, and contribute to the support of the cause of Christ and to relieve the wants of the really needy in their day and opportunity. In his prayer for his son, Solomon, and his gratitude to God for the lib erality of the people in their offer ings to build the Temple, David, the king, as we read in 1 Chron. 29:16, put the truth into the words, "O Lord our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own." Only as we acknowledge this and consider our selves entirely dependent on God for what we are and have, and as we recognize that God has exalted Christ to his own right and had given him all authority in all things, can we do our duty as stewards, and measure up to the claims of Christ upon us in all things. That is the principle that underlies the proper practice of set ting apart of one-t?nth of our Income for Christ and the Church. The whole belongs to God and the tenth is a part of that whole for the specific service of Christ. The nine-tenths may not in such view be used selfishly, or for anything that is not in the service of Christ in business, and the supply of our own real needs and the needs of those dependent upon us. This principle puts a new view of our possessions to very many. It puts a new emphasis on our duty to consider every request for aid and every occasion to take part in the support of every worthy cause. It puts every man, woman and child in a new relation to God and vests the title of all our possessions in God, and makes our possession of anything a sacred trust. If we have little of this world's goods the duty to use this is as great as if we had much. If we have much the responsibility is only larger, but not more binding. It rather adds to the privilege of hav. lng more to use In the service of our Lord and Master. This is no new truth. It is the teaching of God's word. It is the right way of service In the much or ,the little that is en trusted to us. It puts God in His rightful relation to us in what we have. It gives Him the right to say by His prophet Malachi, "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse." It exalts our rank from mere bond servants, driven by mere command to dole out a pittance to those things which we cannot escape, to that of Executor, Administrator, Trustee In the administration of all Trmta tb serriee o 4 this Company is prompt, efficient and oomplsta.
