Od. 17—IClisha Heals Xuauuui. the Syrian. 11 Kings 5 1-14. We have for our lesson this week one of the great bible stories of the Old Testament. It is one which has delighted the ears of eliiUlren lor many hundred years, as told by the mother Til the homo, the teacher in the Sab bath school and tjpe preaehcr in the pulpit. If overflows with thoughts which are helpful/ The time of the lesson is in the days of lOlisha, the prophet of tioil, of whom wo learned somewhat in' the study of la I. week. It would appear that in one of the numberless military .expeditions indulged in by the king ol' Syria and his generals against coun tries border in? certain captives were •made of .lews living along the Jordan river. Among these was a little girl, and she was taken to the household of one of the great Syrian generals to work in the home. The general was Naaman. a mighty man in Syria. He must have been kindly in the eyes'of the maiden, for she took much inter-, est ill him and particularly when she knew that he had the loathsome dis ease of leprosy. She knew well what this meant and her sympathies went out to her master although he kept her a captive. In her humble way the nameless girl became one ol' the great characters ol the bible. She showed sympathy, willingness, to help others, which stamps IK one of Clod's own. She ex pmwed regret thai her master could not. see the prophet, in her homeland and be cured of this disease. Her re mark came to the ears df Naaman and lie was eager to try for help, even in the despised land of Israel. He start ed for there, armed with a letter from liifs' kins to that of Israel, and princely presents to be bestowed on the one who could give liim relief. The king 'f Israel ia wrathful and sorely per plexed when asked to "recover' Naa man of his leprosy, calling.the demand but an excuse for further invasions from the king of Syria. Klislia now comes to view, by send ing word to the king to send the royal Syrian to him. that he might know tliero was a prophet of the true (Jo in Israel. Willi a mighty feeling of his position and power as a general, Naaman came with his presents and servant to the home of Klisha. He had been used to having all men about bim bow in his honor and feel glad when he condescended to speak to 1hem. It was thus his idea that the one whom he honored by asking for healing would come before him with deference, take hold of his person, or •place? thereon medicines to effect the desired cure. Naaman was about to receive a lesson that the Jehovah of Israel was no respecter of persons and to nx'perience a humbling of pride AVliich he little cxpccted. when he came to the country of the despised Jews. Elis-ha would n:it so much as step out of his house to see the great gen eral, but sent directions by messen gers to the effect that to be rid of the leprosy he must wash seven times in the Jordan river. Great was the dis appointment of Naaman. Things were not going as hn planned, the river Jor dan was an inferior stream to many in his own country.' He was so, in rage that lie was ready to still bear the disease rather than humble hi'iis: If by obeying the words of one who did him no honor, and bade him do what seemed a ridiculous tiling. Happily for him, some of his servants and re tainers were level headed enough to see it was. foolish to return home with no cure, when so small a thing was asked as the bathing in a certain riv er. near at hand, seven times. Their reabouing prevailed, antT to the Jor dan wont Naaman with his gorup of men. Once, twice, three times, four. v'Jlve, fc* 4 six', still no signs of the leprosy iltfaving, and then canic the last act at obedience to the demands of Ciod through Mishit the prophet. Seven times, and lo, the awful spots- were gone aud the flesh like as that of a little healthy child. Words cannot express the feelings •which must have come to the great general, but—there must have been boundless joy, and the deepest grati tude. In far different state of mil" Nits man went again to the house of the prophet. His pride was humbled. ltj was ready to praise and magnify the Jehovah of the despised Israelites. He was ready la accept Him as hits (rod for the future. To still further impress Naaman with the greatness of the God he represented. Klisba would not .accept reward in the shape of presents, but sen! Naaman back to his fri-yt 'nfciwisii, hon^e recognizing that the gifts of Cod then as well as now are free to those who obey His couimauds.. Thus much fbr the lenson story. First we note the work of the little maid. In her captivity she did not forget the God of her fathers, and magnified Him over tin.' gods of the heathens about her. She was of the kindly spirit, which should he that of every follower of God. aud anxious lo do good to those about ht r. Second, with nil his power and magnificence Naaman had upon him a blight which no human power eonld rid him oi'. Only the almighty Jehovah, the true living God. could liglp him. Third. Leprosy throughout, the bible is ever likened lo human sin. and rebellion against God. It is a'danining blight from which there Is no relief by one's own efforts. Fourth. There must, be a giving up of one's own pride and ways for a cure, and the following out of that laid down by God. Jesus says that to gain His fav or there must be a coming to him as that of a trusting child, with faith that the sins can be taken away. Fifth The gift of salvation is free without money or price, for "Whosoever will may come." There must be a giving up of one's haughty will to the com mands of Jesus, faith in what He says, trust in His words, prayers for help and then there will be an out pouring of blessing which will remove the sins of the past, and save from such in the future. Hver remember that God is able to ki»ep you from fall ing and to present vim faultless lie fore I ho presence of Tlis glory and therefore to Him should be given words of praise and thankfulness from every lip.
