After his cleansing he came again to the prophet and said, "Now I know that there is no God In all the earth, but In Israel." The vital point of teaching In this lesson is how near ly Naanmii missed being healed. The three enemies which almost kept Mid from being healed were: (1) Pride (v. 11), He was Insulted because the man of God did not come out to such a distinguished man as he was. (2) Preconceived opinion (v. 11). "I thought." Mnny sinners procrastinate because they have preconceived opin ions as to how God ought to save. (3) Prejudice (v. 12). Illvers of Damas cus are better than Jordan. Count less thousands are lost by these ene mies. God hns provided only one way to save men from their sins the way of the Cross. Power of Young Men.

It always is much easier to Ond fault than to offer helpful advice. In re ligious work or anything else of con sequence there are always certain to be those who devote most of their time to criticising. In consequence, by foult-Bnding, without commendation or pointing the way to overcome the things to which exceptions are taken, the natural tendency is to disrupt, weaken and frequently destroy much of the good that otherwise would make the world better and Its people more happy.

Those who become disheartened In doing good, because of the constant fault finding, need a new estimate of the Importance of the work In which 4 they are engaged.
