Genius, like childhood, la ofiuiil in it tuvitilonia If im 11 mmi I of one talent and mediocre mind who are most tempted to the sin of over ' prudence. So many of us are so busy avoiding mistakes that we have no time to accomplish anything. Take the matter of getting the pro- ! posed new road. Some are hanging bac' beciuiso thev nre not sure wheth er the venture will be a success. The I current saying, "He sure you are right and then no ahead," is not always safe to follow, and as a rule will not de velop geniuses. It is oftener the men i who make the venture, even when they arc not sure'they are right, who got to the top rung of success. The Fault of Over-Prudence. Can a man he over-careful or over prudent? It would seem so from the wise man's words, as found in Pro verbs 11:1: "He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that re gardeth the clouds shall not reap." Aside from the lack of prudence, overprttdence is the killjoy of life. It is possible for a man to become a kill joy by his over-prudence. We strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. A man may fail through too much zeal, or a man may fail through too much prudence. Many a- preacher has missed a chance of lifetime because of a misdirected prudence. And this is true not only of the ministerial class, but of other cla.es. Take the simple matter of bodily health. If a man is always thinking of his health, the chances are he will always have or feel the need of a doc tor. Reasonable care and over-prudence are two dilTerent things. Rea sonable care should be exercised, but over-prudence, never. I accompanied a man last fall chick en hunting ,and he was ulways care ful to look out for rattlers. At the end of the day the writer had nineteen chickens and the over-prudent man had one. In the matter of our daily work, we may have our mind so constantly on the difficulties that we get nowhere. We often refuse to tackle a thing be caus of the uncertainty of whether it will be a success. Genius is prodigal and scatters its ittTrttttitft nttistrttitf siistttttt!tsiitittst'') 8 Take the beginners of great move ments. The g.eat reformers are all men who mak; the venture, not worry ing about whether the goal is cprtain or not. They are willing to take the risk, and they usually go down in his tory a successful men and women. The men and women who cau. e the brake to drag on the automobi'e if stf and church today are the per sons who are always questioning the wisdom of thij and that proposed movement or action. They are eyeing the clouds and spend their days shrinking from the winds. The really great men today are, as a rule, dis regarding the obvious difficulties and forging ahead in spite of all that the pessimists say regarding the rough places ahead. I think more of Peter stepping on the waters, and at least malrng the etiort and crying out, "Lord, save me or I perish," than Peter standing on the shore doubting wjiether ,t i really the Lord. When told that the devil would caWk him if he went to the diet, he paid, "I would go if there wer as many devils in Worms as there are tiled on the housetops." The winds were bitter, the clouds were back as mid night, and Luther sowed and reaped lecause he disregarded them. There is a class so prudent, in our churches and state, who are so ufraid of making mistakes that tlvjy mekf: nothing else. The greatest :nUtak to my mind, is the mistake 01' not it tempting to do anything. VVc lave plenty of these in this commMivt''. When told that Duke George was lying in wait for him, Luther said, "I would go, if it rained Duke Gco:ges." While Peter kept his eyes upon Christ, and disregarded the wind atvl waves, he walked upon the waters, hut whn he got over-prudent he fell mis erably, and too often we follow in hi? footsteps today. liacon said, "There is no greater impediment of action than an over-curious observance of decency and the guide of decency, which is time and seasons."
