WHEN DREAMS COME TRUE The International Sunday School Lesson For De 'cember 8 Is: "Joseph Made Ruler of Egypt"—Genesis 41:33, 34 By WILLIAM T. ELLIS This is the day of fulfilled dreams, the import a file has became the mat ter-of-fact. Fiction has been out done. What, with the Gorman tleet dragging its shameful and Impotent way through two lines of British ships; with our armies triumphant on German soil; the boastful and im pious kaiser an ignominious fugi- , tivo from his .own people and from the allies, our soldiers coining home as heroes: Alsace-Lorraine back where it belongs; the ancient Ji° rrol of the subjection of little Christian nations to the bloody Turk ended forever, and all Asia freed from tyr anny and atrocity—surely this is a day olitracing wildest fancy. Di earns do come true. Nowaday we pedc|ive that the most impractical of men is the "prac tical" man, who "hns no time" for sentiment. The true realist is the, idealist. The dreamers are the doers; for the fullilbucnt of their dreams le gions of "practical" men toil with-, out understanding. Verily, "Where there is no vision the' people perish." Joseph, the dreamer, saved his fam- j ily and their world. The most suc cessful statesman of our time used j to be sneered at as a mere "dream- j er." The Great Partnership When we look into the story-book 1 career of Joseph, the dreamer, we j find that, with-all his shortcomings,' he was in partnership with the liv- i ins God. Xlis faith in the unseen! Jehovah was the greatest fact nbout \ him. With religion a central reality, he let all things else fall Into subor-1 dinate place. Definitely, and in youth; HARRISBTTRG TEUEGRXPJt which is the logical time for the great decision. Joseph seems to have chosen to cast his lot in with Hod. And that tlrm must have real pros perity. True, the junior partner was cast into a cistern and sold to Mtdinnltes and carried into slavery in Egypt, j These, however, were mere incidents in a big business, episodes liy the way. The tirm of, God and Joseph was bound to succeed; and. after all. I what are a few years or decades in the life of a great business? A throne lay ahead for the dreaming Joseph, even though the road thereto was rough. I Before he reached his neigh!, the young man made for himself a place , of honor in the house of his master. Potiphar. He did his work so well wherever he was that beholders in -j stinctively commented that God was; with him. Joseph had hold of the 1 great truth which an American later ; expressed. "The best way to get j out of an inadequate position is to be , conspicuously effective ill it." Jle i ! "made good," as a slave or a pris oner or a prime minister. Right' where he was, there he undertook to : j glorify God. No sighing for a better I cStance on his part; no mooning or | ; hiourning over his lack of opportuni- | j 'i es - Not long since, I met a talented | | young officer, an earnest Christian, i | who had been assigned to a garrison I town. He was restive to the last de- j gree. lie wanted action in France, or J . else propaganda work where lie l | could have influence. When it was pointed out to him that his garrison | and its civilian community were a j I rare and desirable opportunity for j | doing all. that he sought, he scoffed] at it. He wanted some made-to-or der place, with a stage set for him- 1 self. His superior talents deserved ; & better field, he contended, '"he net j result has been that he has simply ! deteriorated Where he is. He has j missed a great opportunity, be.cause I he had not the Joseph vision. _ Ail fld Question For To-day This matter of the fiuding of one's best place and employment is given world-wide acuteness by the prospec tive return to their homes of millions j of soldiers. How shall they fit into 1 the new conditions? What readjust ments are necettary? In what way will they affect the existing order?; Timid home-folk are more fearful j about new conditions than are the! battle-taught soldiers themselves, j They have "found themselves" and | are not afraid of changed eircufn- i stances. Light for the hour is shed py this i Joseph story, for it is a study iu ' efficiency. The man who can is the man who will. In times of flux ami stress, the competent stand. AlreadyJ we have seen that the first to be discharged from the big plants are the slackers and the clock-watchers, j The efficient person ;s sure of suc cess anywhere, be it in mid-Russia or in in id-Africa. Joseph was efficient* even as a slave. His religion made him a good servant, as well as a good priifie min ister. There was a constant and vi tal connection between his ideals and his duties. This gave him character and self-respect. Ho valued lua own : manhood, regard les of his status in society, it was this moral integ- 1 lity that enabled him to Withstand the wiles of the sensual wife of his : master. • When tempted, he struck the key note to the solution of our present' social problem: "How can I do this j great wickedness and sin against God? our day's radical tendency is, to eliminate from the sex question 1 all these large considerations of loy- 1 alty to man, to society and to God. | An arrant anarchy is substituted for j ancient fidelity. Straight-flung into I the teeth of a loose-thinking and j loose-living world we must proclaim i the eternal truth that there are sane- ! titles in life which must be Kept in- I violate, and that who o violates them i sins against -God. To talk of "social | indiscretions" which we mean clear- ; cut transgressions of the lawp of man and God is a dangerous euphemism. I This is not the place to enter, into , a discussion of tlip large aspects cf the theme; but from my studies in i Russia and Europe. I am convinced j that a lack of the fundamental spirit I of loyalty—all kinds of loyalty—is ; at the basis of tiie rising spirit of Bolshevikism which threatens so ciety. Never Jhave we more greatly ! needed the state of mind which says. ; '•'How can I do this great wickedness • and sin against God?" Fidelity landed Joseph in jail; but that was the shortest route to he rulership of Egypt; just as until a few weeks ago, one entered the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris byway of a hideous tunnel of sandbags, or as one goes into an oriental pnlpce by means of a miserable alley. In the jail to which Joseph went for hight eousness sake were Pharaoh's butler and baker, with dreams to be solved by him; thus establishing, by the unlikeliest sort of providence, his contact with Egypt's throne. "God moves in a mysterious way. His wonders to perform." A Famine Story For Famine Times , Dreams play a striking part in the ] biography of this young Hebrew i dreamer. First, Joseph dreamed; j then the two court officials dreamed, ' and then Pharaoh himself dreamed ! —a dream of seven fat cows coming j up from the Nile, followed by seven j lean bows which devoured them: and i in parallel, of seven full heads of wheat that were devoured, by seven scrawny heads of wheat that came after them. In those ilgures Joseph, when called, saw seven years of plenty for Egypt, to be followed by seven years of dire famine. Famine Is an old, old story, now newly real to a large part of the earth's population. We should look well to the present condition, for it is the last we shall eVer see. As I talked one day, east of the Jordan, with an Arab and his wife and child! who had fled from Beer-skeba be cause of famine. I realized how old their story was; for thousands of years people have been driven by famine from one part of this region to another. Now that is all over. Transportation and communication and a sense of world solidarity have chased the specter of famine from the earth. Amid the surrender of the armies and ships of the Central Powers, we have missed the full significance of the sailing of Mr. Hoover, to take counsel with the allied nations for the feeding of the world. Implied in that fact is the other, that North America has become the almoner region of earth. Hoover is the mod ern Joseph. He stands for the new era, wherein each accepts responsi bility for all. so that in the day's or- j der there cannot be hunger permit ted anywhere. Before ever a league | of nations is realized, wo accept the i New Testament teaching that we i who are strong ought to bear the burdens of the weak. Wherever there is food to-day. It Is to bo shared with hungry peo < pies. The Josegh principle that the fat valley of the Nile —which Is the i most productive soil anywhere in 1 the world, as well as the most ex pensive agricultural land —should feed the hungry of Palestine and Sy ria has been given a Inrge expan sion of application. Manitoba and tho Dakotus and Argentine ami the | Haurau and Manchuria and Liberia • and Cpper Mesopotamia and Asia s Minor now are to be marshaled to their fullest productivity for all man kind's sake. In the train of Joseph I follow a new school of Hoovers, eco nomists, scientists, philanthropists and missionaries, to feed the hungry everywhere. In apoiher year, pio . tures of famine victims will be out oi date everywhere. >luking Ready to Make Good j The perfect story, as a story of Joseph's adventures, is largely u rec ord of an imaginative young ivan making ready to make good. His : hour found him tit and alert. Oppor- I utility came to him by strange and i devious ways and lie met it, awake and efficient and resourceful. God is i preparing occasions for all of us; but not all of us are preparing for our occasions, j Some are. Dreams come true when ; the d red merg are also doers.
