in the closet and in the family. In us
ing means to ailv;ineo fJod's work wo
c.innoi be too curctul to let it appear
that the power Is all of God. Uecause
(hu day of miracles Iius pafscd God
does not leave us without proofs ol Ida
piesuucti and power nud gr.U.'U, fllneif
there could bo noun better than chati
gnd hearts and livua and tho varied
fruits of Hie gospel. We too how God
looks upon false teachers who corrupt
the faith and piactlce of the peoplo. To
lead oilier souls astray is a sin which
pn. voltes his deepest dlsplensntc. If
thn mirrutlvo shows how uttuily iiiuu
are fiusal.un by their idols when ad
versity nud need coiues,'it also shows
bow eigurfiod always Is to recover
wanderers to hiinself. Chiul among all
tliu lessons hole Is that God will accept
none but sincere and tiudlvldml service.
It Is this which bo asks and roquiios ot
all. Nor dues lm usk too miieh. It tho
l.iiril bu God, follow him. Destiny
those idols anil renounce thoiui asocla
