YOUNG PEOPLE'S SOCIETIES.
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."

THE SUNDAY-SCHOOL LESSON.
Jesus and the Children. (Matt,
xviii, 1 14.)
Prepared for The Republic by the Reverend J. E.
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),

and warns by exposure to hell fire. (I-uke,
I-., 25; 2 Thess.. i., S, 9). 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).
