Christ differs from man iu this: Man locks the (lour nf his experi ence against the world. T iften we live in self. Hut I rials umi troublea are harsher than those of any other; our burdens harder lo bean our sorrows we clasp closely us though they were our precious treasures, tint of His experience our Masti r helped ol hers, t M all man, His life was one nf self-abnegation. Whatever the condition oi the soul Chrial on earth reached otil to help umi cheer umi encour age and save. Heboid the Christ walking among men. In the home Ol .Man ami Martha in their sorrow He reasons of a resurrection from the dead; with the other sister He hows his bead ami weeps, With the doubt ing disciples He speaks of His work ami mission ; lo Thomas, doubting, He exhibits His wounds To the weak under temptation. He suys. ' rater, Hatan hath de sired to have yon that he might sift miii as wheat; hut I have play ed for you." To Peter fallen from Ills chosen place among lie apos ties, thrice the Master asks, ",n est thou Mat" ami restores him li his ministry. To those sick of divers disease. He heals their in fortuities, hut above His miracles stand out His gracious words and His loving touch. To the sinful a poor fallen woman was brought to 1 1 mi . lie wrote in the sand and then spoke words which put her OOWardly accusers lo shame and flight. "Woman, where are they that license I beef Has lin man condemned you"' The poor soul answered; 'No man has con damned." "Neither do I condemn thee; go and sin no more." One broke an alabaster box of precious ointment nnd anointed Him, Sonic objected. He taught 'To whom much is forgiven, the some lovetli much." To the woman lie said, "thy sins arc forgiven " To men ami women in degradation ami sin He spoke words of comfort, forgiveness, hope. life. As a church and us individual Christians ii is for its to imitate our Lord. When there is suffer ing and sorrow, we are to go with the love of Christ in our hearts and words of hope upon our lips. Where there is sin am) degradation, how ever deep the mire Into which the soul has sunk, however often pa tience has been tried ami forgive ness exercised, we are to carry the message: "I. Ion, have sinned greatly, I. too, have tried the Mas Id's patience, lie iias forgiven me and restored me; He will restore you." To you who are followers of Christ, remembei He bnsfasted all of life's woes If for Mill there is a sorrow nf ( lethsemane and an anguish nf Calvary, remember the Master has gone before you. Re member that these are not abiding Olaoegi they are only halls on the pathway of life After the Ghtrden and the Cross is tht; resin reetion ami glory. Il is not for you to for over dwel! in the shadows. Re member, although we dwell in the valley of shame and sin and mis ery of humanity, the Mount of Transfiguration is at hand. Climb its slopes; drink in some of its glo ry and joy : return to the valley carrying these with you as heav en's hlesmnr; to earth. And if yon are to-day in stn, awuv from Christ, behold His love for the sinful, His help, His cheer, His salvation. The incense from a sinner s alaliaster hox lias con tinued to rise from garth to heaven for many years; it has permeated the whole earth. Add to that of fering of sin the incense nf your own heart and life to-day. He, the Christ, is aide to help in every time of need ; He, the Christ, will will save your soul from ruin and cleanse your life. Science of Everyday Living. RtV, I.eoliaril 11. KiirmliiKtiiii M. g anktns, Till fell. pastor Si mill "If you love yourself everso mueh nobody else will love you nl ull," so says one of the world's proverbs. And how true it is; no use in extremely selfish people ex pecting to get on smoothly in the world. They cannot deal fairly with their neighbors, nor their friends. They enujiot net fairly, because they cannot see clearly. If we unselfishly observe Ihe laws of the science of right living, what a place we may make for ourselves in this world! And to feel thai we have a place, to feel that we are needed, and to know that we are wanted, what a thrilling satis faction. "The deepest of all htl mau longings is simply lo be wanted." And those who know how to treat men and women are always wanted. They who have mastered the science of right liv ing are blessings Hi their neighbors, hut beautifully and gladly do their neighbors return lo them tin' rich est aud the beat. They bless ami are not left unblessed! Looking back over a well lived life, Charles Kingsley said, "I had a friend." We feel tin; force of this, for we have all had a friend, who, having made light living un art. has pointed us to a better use of the world. At a needy lime how the baud nl a friend has helped us.
