Five Sermon Thoughts Whole nations have chosen foolishly. It has brought them ruin, hunger, rags and slavery. Only they that serve God have liberty and plenty. — Josh. 24:15: Choose you this day whom you will serve. David was not the last mortal who did immortal deeds be cause he had a great faith.— Ps. 18:29: -For by thee have I run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. Paul remade Europe and turned the world upside down. Yet he was a man unimpres sive in appearance and a poor speaker.—Phil. 4:13: I can do all things through Christ that strengtheneth me. You cannot snatch the stars from the sky by shutting your eyes, nor can you dethrone God by denying him.—Ps. 14:1: The fool hath said in his heart there is no God. A fine character is conta gious. Example is the best ar gument.—II Tim. 1:5: I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice. The Hawaiian Islands were dis covered by Capt. James Cook, the British naviator, who landed there in 1778. First Presbyterian Chucrh Men Plan Initial Get-To-Gether Here September 29 To Hear S.J.

The dictionary defines harmony as “concord or agreement in facts, opinions, manners, inter ests, etc.” But most of the pas sages cited from the Book of Proverbs have to do with the best way of getting on with angry and disagreeable people, with whose facts and opinions one isn’t likely to have much in common. This is as it should be. There is no particular problem about liv ing harmoniously with people whom one likes, and with whom there is the sort of concord that the dictionary suggests. The real problem is to avoid discord, and live peaceably and in mutual tol erance with those whom one doesn’t like, and to whose facts, opinions or manners one may be definitely opposed. That is why the proverbs cited offer really helpful counsel. In general, the basic advice is that if other people act meanly and nastily toward you, don't be nasty yourself. If a man is angry with you, that’s the time to con trol your own temper. “A soft an swer turneth away wrath; but grievous words stir up anger.” “Make no friendship with an an gry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go; lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.” Proverbs that recall Paul’s counsel, ‘‘As much as lieth in you live peaceably with all men.” There are limits even to the prac tice of forbearance, but one is wise to keep the boundary very wide. In a similar spirit, the Proverbs stress the wisdom of regulating one’s own life with good sense, and not according to what others are doing. Envy of others, of their wealth, or power, or success, or of some advantage that they seem to possess, can create great dis harmony in one’s soul. Peace of mind is of the very essence of inward harmony, and there can be no peace of mind where envy and bitterness are harbored. The passages cited in our lesson deal chiefly with wisdom in per sonal attitudes and relationships, but it is obvious that our world today presents great problems of harmonious living between groups, races, peoples and nations. Here the principles of harmonious liv ing are the same, but the prob lems are both vaster and more acute. In our personal lives and re lationships we can do much to avoid people who don’t like us, or who are unfriendly toward us. But in the larger social and inter national relationships we are con fronted with conditions and situ ations that we have to take as they are: situations involving sharp differences, if not conflicts, in ideas and ideals, ways and manners. Yet unless we can achieve some measure of mutual good will, tolerance, and forbear ance, dark tragedy looms again upon the nations. The proverbs and counsels that make for wisdom and harmonious living in individual life ought to be watchwords in the affairs of the nation, and in the dealings of nations with one another.
