To tend and cultivate.

Every one of us wants to get as much
out of thta life as possible, an<) Christ Is
ready to help us each one In our Individ

you are In affairs, no matter how well
educated you are. It is always possible to j

school with different teachers. Wo are
placed here by Ood and given the free
choice of our teacher. Wo can take up
worldly subjects, those things which hurt
us physically, morally and spiritually, wo
can lake up moral ethlca and leave Christ
out of It, or we can go to school under
Christ and learn from Him. If wo wish to
spend eternity with Christ the best way
to prepare for It is to go to school under
Him on earth, it wo are willing to take
whatever they may be j
for onr course, we can follow other teach
ers at variance with Him.

faulty lives of ours which might and

Christ can teach us In a great maffy dif

Ills sayings recorded, snd no philosopher
over reached greater heights than He, no
lawyer ever produced better arguments.
Ho can teach us how to live our earthly
life so that wo get the most out of It, and
He teaches us our relation lo God. He
leaches us how to mako earthly friends
and how to pray to the Father who is a
friend of all. He teaches ua bow to live
and how to die.
Ono of the greatest lessons Christ
leaches us Is Devotion. Christ came to
earth with one Idea, and although it took
thirty years beforo tho time was ripe lo
have that Idea bu il lied, yet He faithfully
and patiently devoted Himself to the
waiting. At the age of twelve although He
was able to talk with the Doctors In the
Temple, Ho knew that the tlmo was not
ready for Him to begin His ministry,
and so He very patiently drew Himself
back to His own village aaid awaited the
time when God was ready to bless His
beloved Son. But after He did enter Into
His ministry wo sea a life wholly dc
voted to the work He Is doing. He allows
no outside Influences to carry Him aside
from His purposes and allows no dlscour.

not mine be done" He shows His entlro

The lesson of kindness shines forth all

His speaking one harsh word throughout
His life. He always had a helping word
or deed for those that came lo Him. He
alwaj'» healed those who had faith to
b8llev , that H e could. He never condemn
ed, always forgave. When they brought
the woman, found In sin, to Him, although
by the Jewish law she should bavo been
stoned to death, yet Christ taught them
a higher law, the law of forgiveness and
tcld them, that ho who is without sin
should cast tho first stone. If Christ Is as
willing to forgive us how ought we to
treat our fellows. Ought we> not to forgive
them even as Christ has forgiven us? If
