AMBITION THRUSTS UP ITS UGLY HEAD How Many of Us Are Looking For Chief Seats in the Kingdom! The International Sunday School Les son For July 12 Is "<.reatncss Through Service."—Mark 10:32-45. (By William T. Ellis) "Barrie's great story, "The Little Minister," reaches its climax when the pastor of the "Auld Licht" church, assailed by an infuriated con gregation, battled with a flood which apparently .means Inevitable death. In this hour he played the man so splendidly with no thought of fear or of self, but only of his work, of his loyalties and of his love, that the time of sentiment was completely turned. The highest heroism shows itself in the presence ot clearly per ceived and inescapable death. The galleries of memory hold as treasures the pictures of the brave men aboard the Titanic who died like gentlemen, rather than seek life like cravens. And now we come upon a picture of the greatest Hero of all, looking without blinking into the eyes of near death. The final battle between Jesus and the priestly and Pharisaic party had been joined at the grave of The victory, humanly speaking, clearly lay with His enemies. There could be only one result.

There was no escape for Him. He knew that He must suf fer and die in ignominy. The cross was fixed on the retina of the soul of Jesus. Hear Him describe what lay before Him: "Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man shall be delivered unto the chief priests and the scribes; and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him unto the Gentiles; and they shall mock Him, and shali j spit upon Him, and shall scourge Him,! and shall kill Him; and after three days He shall rise again." Striking a False Note That is the background of this lesson. It lends meaning to the in cidents which the Sunday Schools are now studying. The latter can be un derstood only in the light of their setting. The words are those of a man about to die. The parting coun sel is the exalted admonition of a Friend and Teacher who was more than a father to the group about Him. The scene was as sacred as a death chamber. The atmosphere was surcharged with the spirit of the approaching tragedy. In" this hour, if ever, any little souls might be expected to rise above petty inter ests. To intrude trivial or ignoble themes into this occasion, would be like talking millinery over a mother's bier. Nevertheless, the opportunity was seized by the nearest disciples of Jesus to gain honors for themselves. Here again, and in the other most sacred hours of the Master's life, am bition thrust Its ugly head forward. The disciples who should have been the most tender and sympathetic sharers of His passion, were using this hour to assure their own future positions. Whatever the nature of the kingdom that the Lord meant to found, they wanted the chief seats. The Politician's Petition Shortly before President Wilson's election, a well-known politician told me that he was an applicant for an office under the administration, and when I asked him concerning the particular post, he said, "Well, any thing from a place in the Cabinet to a position in the internal revenue service." The man saw no absurdity in his statement. He thought he was fitted for the highest post. His ambitions outran his ability. He did not realize what he asked. In like manner these disciples, James and John, made a preposterous request of their Master. Selfteh interests had blinded their judgment— as It com monly does. What they asked was nothing less than this: "Grant unto us that we may sit, one on Thy right hand and one on Thy left hand in Thy glory." Amazement at this vaulting ambi tion iS obscured by tho thought of how slight was the real understand ing of tho character and work of their Teacher and Friend with whom these men had companied intimately for three years. This astounding re quest makes clear that they had not for a moment really apprehended the nature of their Lord and His mis sion. All His efforts to enlighten them had fallen upon closed and carnal ears. For what James and John asked entered ii.to the very councils of eternity and sought to overlap the plans of the Infinite. Had blistering and excoriating words j of rebuke fallen from the lips of the I Leader, we would feel that justice! was being done. Yet with considera tion and compassion, as a parent deals with the childishness of little children. Jesus said gently, "Ye i know not what ye ask. Are ye able ! to drink the cup that I drink? or! to be baptised with the baptism that I nm baptised with 0 And they said; unto Him, We are able. And Jesus said unto them. The cup that I drink ye shall drink: and with the baptism that I am baptised withal shall ye be baptised; but to sit on my right hand or on my left hand is not mine : to give; but it is for them for whom I it hath been prepared." The two did not comprehend at! all what they were about, much less' what Jesus designed.

A Split in the Ranks Carranza and Villa down in Mex | ico have been separated by rivalries. | I Political parties have been torn asun- j ; der by individual ambitions. The | temperance reform presents a divided front for the same reason. This : tendency is as old as human nature, j ;It threatened the little group of > I twelve follo'wers of Jesus. When the ; j ten learned of the secret ambition j and scheme of the two, they were ' incensed. Their silent discontent I over the favors shown the others now broke into open protest. They were probably no better than the others and equally ambitious. Simply the two had got ahead of them. Such was the material out of which the early church was made. We marvel that such common men as these should have been transformed into the apostles of a later day. How was this crisis met by Jesu»? I Did He answer by thunders of au thority and denunciation? No. In stead, He opened school and held a kindergarten class in His philoso phy of greatness. He gathered the twelve close to Himself and patiently taught them: "Ye know that they who are accounted to rule over the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great ones exercise authority over them. But It is not so among you: but whosover ' would become great among you, shall be your minister; iind whosoever would be first among you, shall be servant of all. For the Son of Man also came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." Mastering by Ministry In the middle ages there was a widespread belief in the power of a talisman. Sir Walter Scott wrote a book about one such, whoso touch was supposed to heal and to extract poisons. In the few lines just quoted we have a talisman for most of the Ills of church and the time. It takes the danger out of every possible po sition and relationship. Con well those words. They be long on the fleshy tablets of the heart. They epitomize the life of, Jesus. They can save the church! from worldliness and selfishness; can; save an efficient life from bitterness of selfcenteredness; can save the am-* bitious from tragic failure. To seek to serve others is to save self. Nobody is too high, too low, too powerful, too humble to achieve* this real greatness. It is better to] bo helpful than high. Service la worthier than fame. Look down the long vistas of the centuries, and the' Highest of all figures is upborne above all others upon a cross of sac rifice and service.
