Memory V»rM, 46 Qolden Text, Ram. viil, 81—Commentary Prepared by Rev. D. M. Steams. The ermine of the living God defied end the people of God reproached de scribee the state of affairs at the open ing of thie lesson (verse* 10, 26, 861. 1 have lost reed In the papers of a deficit in each of two mission boards of over $280,000 and of one denomination that has lost 300,000 members In six years. Does there seem to be any parallel,, and If so where Is the David for the occasion? We have reason to thank God for a man like Rev. William Sunday, who Is rescuing more soul* from the hands of the enemy and slay ing more giants than any other man in America today (May, 1914), as far as we are able to Judge, because he has learned how to sling stones with deadly aim In the name of the living God. We cannot but thank God also for such a witness as Daniel Crawford, from the heart of Africa, who has been standing for the living God -before the preachers and students and hundreds of thousands of the people of our land. Oh, for more such Davids and Daniels! Who la willing to be another such? How pitiful to see the men of Israel sore afraid and fleeing from one defi ant Philistine! (Verse 24.) The words of Joshua are applicable, “O Lord, what shall I say when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies?” (Josh. vll. 8.) David, the shepherd boy, of no ac count in the eyes of his brethren, found this condition of things when be came to the camp, sent by his father to see bow his brethren fared' and to bring them some good things from home (verses 18-18), he having returned from being Saul’s armor bearer to feed Ms father's sheep at Bethlehem. Ellab, his eldest brother, misjudged him and spoke unkindly to him, hot he meekly replied. Is there not a cause? (Verses 28, 29). David’s Inquiry as to why this man should be allowed to defy God and reproach Israel was told to Saul, and be sent for David, and be said to Saul: “Let no man’s heart fan because of him. Thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine. The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion and out of the paw of the bear. He will deliver me out of his hand” (verses 32-37). Saul armed David with bis armor— his helmet, his coat of mall and his sword (what a snapshot that would have made?)—but be could not go thus, for he had not proved It So he pat it all off him, and with his sling and live smooth stones, wMch he knew how to use, and with his staff In his hand he went forth to meet the giant the great mass of blaspheming flesh and blood (verses 38-40). The giant disdained him and cursed him, which Is about the way that flesh always acts toward the spirit or mocks, as Ishmael did Isaac (verses 41-44; Gen. xxt 6; Gal. v, IT). How grand are the words of David, “I come to thee In the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast de fied” (verse 46). The Invisible God was much more real to David than this visible giant who made Israel to trem ble. He reminds us of Caleb and Joshua, to whom giants and walled cities were nothing, because they saw and believed God. Mooes also endured as seeing Him who Is Invisible. Most people, however, see the difficulties and eee themselves as grasshoppers (Num kill. 33). , Then notice David’s one desire, that all Israel and all the earth might know the God whom he knew, the living God, the God who could deliver from an actual lion and bear. He had no thought of hhnself nor desire for any glory for himself, but be honored the Lord, and the Lord did honor him, ac cording to I Bam. tl, 30. It Is greet to see no nun any more save Jesus only and to say from the heart: ~The Lord Is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear?" (Mark lx, 8; Ps. xxvli, 1.) Nothing can be compared to such a confidence In God as David;had. Now see him running toward the giant, placing a stone In his sling, and with a prayer to his God sending It In the name of the Lord of hosts and for the honor of His name. Do you wonder that It went straight and struck hard, sank Into the gtint*s forehead and fell ed him to the earth? The eyes of all the thousands of Israel and of the Philistines were upon David as he ran to meet his enemy, but he gave that no thought, for his eyes were upon the living God, and God’s eyes were upon him. according to II Chron ivl, & David had no weapon, so he ran and stood upon the giant (can’t you see him?) and, taking the giant’s sword cut off his hesd and carried It away In triumph, first to Baul and then to Jem salon. He took the giant’s armor also (verses 48d8). This was all written for your' bsneflt and mine that we might learn to be strong In the Lord 1 and In Os power of His might I do sot understand how neither Saul nor the captain of his host knew who Da vld was, although David had been Saul's armor bearer, but 1 rejoice to meet Jonathan again sail to ess him vt sv as his own soul sad strip pat thorn upsa*Dsvtd (chsptsr’xvttl.

BARNETT DODSON. Much Interest baa been aroused In educational circles among our people throughout the United States by the tact that the West Virginia Colored taetltute hoe been raised from a second ary school to college rank. President Byrd Prillerman. of this institution. Ml been the recipient of letters of Congratulation from many of the lead ing Negro educators in all sections of t|>e country. On Wednesday. Feb. 17. 1915, both houses of the West Virginia legisla ture passed a bill without a dissenting tote, changing the name of the Institu tion to the West Virginia Collegiate in stitute and authorising it to do college work and also* extension work. Too much credit cannot be gtren Governor BYRD PRILLERMAN. I B. D. Hatfield. who recommended to i (be tefbUtare In hts annas] meeaege that each a change be made The governor la very thoroughly In tweeted to Negro education and has rahen advantage of every opportunity to demonstrate this Interest. The move ment among the colored people of the state to have this college established wee led by Professor J. W. Scott, prin cipal of the Douglass school. Hunting ton. W. Va. It is highly creditable to the race In the state that It was for ape time almost unanimous in the , aCtart and plans for this college course. She school Is Just completing a new : dining hall, which will have a seating 1 capacity of 800. It is a three story > brick building and thoroughly fireproof. When completed it will bo the finest wheel dining hell to be found In the its to of West Virginia. The state board of control, of which the Hon. James 8. Lakin Is the president, de serves much commendation for the im partial manner In which It has manag ed the financial affairs of this lnstltn tioo. The board has thoroughly demon strated that It Is highly In favor of the Negro youth of the state having the very best facilities for education. The summer school at this institution win begin on llonday, Juno It and continue for six weeks. Some of the ■blest speakers In the country have been secured to direct the work of the rammer school session, which from the very beginning of this special oppor tunity afforded teachers to better equip themselves for their chosen work has (wen a popular success. It Is already dawning upon the teachers In the city and country schools of the state that since the West Virginia Colored Insti tute has been raised to college rank they should bestir themselves to make the pupils In the schools which they teach more proficient In tbelr studies. Thu Idea Is also gaining In public favor that, these urban and rural schools should fit pupils to enter the West Vir ginia Collegiate Institute. Professor Byrd Prillerman has won Hu spurs as an educator upon merit He hoe been prominent in the work of education In West Virginia for a good many years, and by his loyalty to the Institution of which he Is the honored hand he has won a wide reputation as a eons tractive genius In bringing things to pass for the advancement of his men. He Is one of the officials and strong promoters of the Land Gram roUsge movement, of which hie fellow educators have seen lit to make him tee presiding officer. The raising of his I Chip I at Institute. W.
