ii f Warning Notes Calling the Wicked to BepenUnce TUB reformer la a living declaration of war. Truth has noth ing to fear from the future. God is on "the side of the man who behaves him self. The moat dan gerous wrong step is the first one. God always has a large place for the faian who is willing to do little things, i If you know that you love everybody, everybody knows that you love God. There Is such a thing as having great influence witliout having great talent. I In building the temple of your life, be sure to make Christ the chief corner stone. ; The man who thinks for himself, will ulso think for the long procession that follows him. ; A godly life is something that preaches when nothing is being eald In the pulpit There Is a sense In which the blood of every sacrifice lifts somebody Into a higher life. It is a great mistake for the young to despise what the old have learned py experience. Perhaps the world could have been caved without preaching, but not with out holy living. J God is as sure to reward true faith to-day, as he was when Abraham, of fered up Isaac. Resting in the Lord Is the highest qualification for doing whatever the Lord wants done. One of the worst things about a bad man, is that he leads a 'long procession Df others Into evil. The man who would be used of the Lord in the battle against sin, must keep himself in light marching order. Easily Satisfied. There was once a mandarin who was excessively fond of Jewels, and always walked abroad with his robe covered with the sparkling gems. One day he was accosted by au old bonze, who, following him through tk street, bowed himself often to the ground and thanked the mandarin for his Jewels. "What does the man mean?" cried the mandarin, in great alarm. Then addressing the bonze, ho said, "I never gave you any jewels, man!" "No,"' replied the bonze, "but you have let me look at them, and that is all the use you can make of them yourself, bo there 13 no difference between us, except that you have the trouble of guarding them, a task I would not care for."
