Topic, "The Evil of Envy' Luke sv, 2332. Tho yot-ng people's topic for to-morrow evening is "The Evil of Envy," and is based on tho closing paragraph of tho parable tf the prodigal son. It la the third bcene In that wonderful drama, nnd la the climax of tho truth Christ dwelled to teach. Tiu lirst scene in the oar.ible det-trlbcs the vvny-wurdiu"-:, nnd llnilitv of hin; the recond portras tho awakening, the return and tho lather's forgiveness: nnd now this third re veals the true tplrlt of the elder son, who remained at home, which certainly stands out in bold contrast with that which tho father exercls-ed. It is said that wlun this elder brother re turned ftom the Held and heard niu.sio and elanciifr in tho home he asked for an ex planation, and that when it was given, in stead of joining in the rejoicing, lie Milked and was very angry. He gave express' an to his true feelings tliu1.: "lo, these in.mv years do 1 -erv' thee, neither tr.in-grOs.sed 1 at nnv time thy commandment; and yet thou never gavesl me a Kid, that 1 Wight make mertj vvitli my friends. But as toon as this thy son was eonie which hath de voured thy living with lnrlols. thou iiast killed for hin the tatted calf." Burning woid.s thO"-e, and they must have fallen like molten lead on the heart eif that old father. It may have been that the lather. In tho exuberance of the moment, had not alto gether acted discreetly In tho matter, but this in no sense justiiieel such a torre-nt of abuse. It is clear, therefore, that it was born of a spirit of envy, which is close akin to revenge. But mark the mlldnes and magnanimity of the father's replv: "Son. thou ail ever with me. nnd ail that 1 have is thine. It was mtet tli.it we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive acnin: nnd was lost. and is found " We are not told how the elder son iceeived this reply, but the rebuke must have burned in hK soul. He must have seen. In his father's words, as in a mirror, his own self ish and envious features reflected In all their hideouMiess. and it is hoped that his conviction was sure. One tiling is certain, that tli e scribes and Pharisees, against whom the parable was spoken, weie com pletely silenced ns to their charge, "This man receiveth sinners and eateth with them." But the theme before us Is. "The Evil of Knvv." Well, we see ftom the case of tl.e elder son that one of the llrst in fluences of envy is to dwarf all the nobler impulses of the soul. The nutural feeling of one brother for another, even when reaping the logical results of hi-- own mad career, is one ot pltv and sympathy. But in the ease of the elder brother, this God given impulse was apparently dead. Ho seemingly cared nothing us to whether Ms brother was dead or alive, and responded not tp the spirit of rejoicing that characterized the rest of the household. So it mav be in spiritual matters, some even preferring that a wayward brother go to hell rather thnn see him rescued in some other wnv than their own. Here is a leson of rebuke for the intense denominationallst. Anothei evil iniluence of envy is the pro duction of a self-riehteous spirit. This elder brother paraded his own virtues before his father bj way of contrast to tha Vices of his jouiurer brother. The father does net deny the facts asserted, but in a most con vincing way gives him to understand that lie Is lacking a most Important virtue, viz, chanty. We lind this same self-righteous spirit ever where, and even among the pro fessed disciples of Christ. Like the Phari see of old; they ilrtually stand in the prs tnce of the church and the world and say, I giv e, I fdfct, I prav," and at the Famo time harbor a spirit of envy toward the re turning prodigal, and cspeciallv if he be received with open aims and there follow a time of feasting and rejoicing. Here also the parable administers a stinging icbuke. Selected topic thoughts: "Envv puts a thorn in the lam el wreath." "Envy puts bitter drops into nil its sweet draughts," Nothing but weeds grow in the toil of envj, "There is more hope of a prodigal than of an envious and suspicious man." SUNDAY CHURCH SERVICES.

Gilbert D D.. LU D . S-crrtary of American Society of Religious Education. CONTHXT-1. While descending the mountain after the transfiguration. Jesui conversed with his apostles concerning Elias On reaching the plain below he cast a dumb spirit out of a demoniac boy which the nine had failed to do. Again he fore told his deatli and resurrection, b-dng the third time that subject had been mentioned in ten days. Then the company journeyed southward, no record being made of tho events; in the wa. except that there as a dispute amons the twelve as to their su periority ln the kingdom of heaven. (Mark x, SC.) Arriving at Capernaum a mlraclo was performed to provide money for the annual taxes. Jesus retired to the house, probably to that of Teter, where he had the interview with tho apostles outlined ln the lcsson for the day. PL'KPOSE-Expositors differ concerning tho primary import of this passage of Scripture. Many, helieting tho llrst verso is most prominent, think that Jesus intend ed to answer tho question of the npostIc3 by instructing them concerning their of fice nnd work. Some, regarding the last verse as the climax, think that, taking oc casion of their dispute, he sought to settle it by showing the place and valuo of little children in his system of doctrine. Others, finding the key in the eleventh verse, con tend that the SInster designed, as on other occasions, to direct attention to nimself. Judging from the topic, the InterhatiDnal Committee held the second position. A bet ter interpretation unites the main feature? of all these views. Whatever Jesu3 said concerning tho apostles or childhood or himself bore upon a theme in which all his teaching found unity, namely, the kins lorn of heaven. Tho Jewish nation expected a Messiah who would set up a temporal kingdom. Unlike their countrymen, the apostles believed Jeus to be the Me3iah, but jet they were 1 ound by the popular be lief concerning the nature of his Kingdom. That false notion, the source of their other errors, must bo corrected. Jesus liaC pre viously and frequently instrJc:od tlitm en the subject, and he now unlertases by another method to mako them inder'tand. He is destined to fail, however, as tp to the last they thought of him as a restorer of temporal sovereignty. (Luke xxii, a 30; Acts i, 6.) ANALYSIS-1. Beginnlnff with the thought that the passage treats of the king dom of heaven, it may bo divided into three great parts, furnishing answers to as many leading questions. First, who are to bo admitted into tills kingdom? What class of persons? What shall be their general character? Will the kingdom be on tho basis of raco or of blood or of moral qual ity? Second, after certain persons are ad mitted, how phall they be treated? And, in order to secure such treatment, what shall be the proper spirit, attitude and be havior of those who administer the affairs of the kingdom in the interests of the sub jects? Third, upon what basis of prin ciple and authority of wisdom and expe diency does ad this rest? How and by wliat right are these questions of member ships and administrations adjusted? How- came tliero to be projected and set up such a kingdom, unlike those previously exist ing? 2. Or, moro briefly, we have hero in structions concerning the members and agents and the founder of the kingdom, the three classes of persons who mako every monarchy tho character of the first, the conduct of tho second and the spirit of tho last. By giving correct views on these three topics Jesus expects to explain him self and his mission and the placa nnd mission of tho npostles. At the same time ho gives great truths destined to recon struct society. CHARACTER Who are tho members of the kingdom? Jesus unswers in three waj-3. 1. He gives an object lesson. A llttlo child set in the midst of them. largo enough to walk (for ho came on call), small enough to bo taken ln arms (Mark It, 36). proba bly 2 or 3 years old. Tradition says that the child was Ignatius, afterwards Bishop of Antioch. Tho words of Jesus on another occasion (Matt, lx, 36), warrant tho belief that "no Intended to say that children are members, as they had been ln the Jewish Church. (Deut. vi, ".) Tho apostles evi dently so understood. (Eph. vl, ; II Tim. Hi 15.) 2. He declares that childlike adults wero members of the kingdom. Solomon and Jeremiah so classed themselves. (I Kings HI, 7: Jer- ' " T"6 chlId gPr,t is given ln Scripturo under four heads quietness or submlssiveness (Psalm cxxxl, 2) freedom from malice (I Cor. xiv. 20), desiring Instruction (I Pet. II, 2), humility (verse 4, lesson), tho last being most prom inent here because of circumstances. 3. He showed how adults acquired the child-llke-riesj by conversion. That included repent ance (Matt, ill, 2). or chango of thought and purpose of life (Matt. xlii. 15), and expresses n sintn freauently mentioned In Scripture under various aspects. (Psalm 11, 19; Isa. vi, 10; Acts ill, 19; James v. 19.) It is difficult to the rich (Matt, xix, 23), and is frequent ly attended by pain. (Acts xiv, 22.) It is the straight or narrow entrance way (Luko xlll, 21), a new birth (John III, 5), result ing in righteousness. (Matt, v, 20; li, 21.) Or, briefly, tho kingdom will be composed not of the descendants of Abraham (Matt, ili, 9;, but of children under nurture and those who, by change of heart and life, return to the child state, and so become tho children of God (Matt, v., 15). constituting a family (Eph. ill, 15), among whom ail aro equals. (Matt, xxlil, 8.) CONDUCT In such kingdom there is no need of rulers to exercise authority as in human society. So far as, honor is concern ed each must prefer the other. (Rom., xli., 10; Phil., ii., 3). But there is needed a class of officials for service and they aro greatest who serve mostand best. (Matt., xx., 26). Jesus then outlines the proper conduct of those who serve, thus coming to tho work of the Apostles under three heads. They are to receive the members, give them no offense and be careful not to despise them. Jesus calls the members llttlo ones retain ing the child Idea, and declares that who so receives them receives him, which last thought ho afterward expressed. (Matt., x.. 40, iZ; John, xiii., 20). On the matter of otlenses or causing members to stumble, ho Is very emphatic, saying that it were better to be drowned, referring to a mode of capi tal punishment practiced by the Oreeks. The Apostles allude to this letter. (Rom., xiv., IS; I Cor., vill, 9). He is drawn out to express the terrible consequences to tho world through tho offenses of men of po sition which he might have illustrated (Gen. iii., 21; I Sam., ii.. 17, 21; U Sam., xii., 24), and pronounces a woe upon the of fender, perhaps with Judas in mind. (Acts, 1., 18, 20) To protect them against arfy misdemeanors he urges them to cast away everything that may lead them astray, (Matt., v., 29. 30), in harmony with other Scripture, Osa.. il,. 20. 21), (Rom., xiii. Vl), wmmmmiMM& LONDO The filler is a combination of High Grade Havana and Domestic Tobaccos.

Jesus was speed ily aninus that the Apotles should not despise any of his follower- that is think lightly of them. 1'overty. ignorance.or low ly station might lead to thl. The Apostle3 themselves leiteratud the sentiment. (Horn., xiv., 1. S; Cal., Iv., 14; 1 Thss . iv.. S). To enforce this point Jesus declared that t.very follower had an angel who always beheld thf I'jther's face, who was In the presenco and favor of God. This doctrine of angelic guardianship is scriptural. (Psalm, xx-tiv.. 7; Hob., I., 14, and It v.ua calculated to help the ambitious apostles to Just views of their work. EXAMPLE Having covered the charac ter of members and the conduct of officials, Jesus proceeds to exhibit the foundation principles of the kingdom to show the wis dom of the foregoing. 1. It is in accordance with his own spirit and work, for he camo to save the lost (Matt, ix, 13; I Tim. i, 15), not to be ministered unto, but to minister (Matt, xx, 23). To make them understand Mica an unique career as his ho likens it to that of a shepherd seeking lost sheep, a fig ure frequently used in the Old Testament concerning Israel. (Ps-alm cxix, ITS; Isa. lilt. 6; Jer. 1, 6.) The scattering In the mountains (I King3 xxii, 17; Ezek. xxxiv, 6) was high ly expressive of sinful wandering. He de clares that his joy (Heb. xii. 2) was liko that Of a shepherd after a successful search (Isa. liii, 2; Zeph. iii, 17). It, therefore, follows that if Jesus is here on such an errand his kingdom must have officials to serve those whom he seeks to save, no other would be of any use to him. Indeed, this spirit and mission determine every feature of the kingdom. 2. Advancing a point further, he opens the very heurt of God, In which all things had their origin (John iii, 16) and de clares that it is not his will that any of the little ones should perish. This idea finds frequent expression in scripture (Luke xii, 32; John vi, 34 10; Rom. vill. 31). The force of the section seems to be this: "I came to save, and your father does not wish any to be lost; therefore, the apostles are charged with a solemn duty as servants and guar dians, and not as masters and rulers." CONCLUSION The human and the di tine view of the heavenly kingdom, are ln striking contrast. Coming to us with world ly thoughts, ignorant, scltish and ambitious men strive for place and honor. I5y their duscusslons and intrigues the church has ben scandalized and many little ones have been offended. Untold calamity has thereby comc to society and an awful retribution awaits these offenders. But tho loving1 Jesus still seeKS to save tno lost ana to bring under his benign government the souls of men. Happy they who accept him. loved by the father, guarded by the angels, one household of brethren, theirs Is the true spiritual kingdom (Matt v, 3). For the spread of that kingdom let all labor and pray (Matt, vl, 10). Change of Schedule.
