Saturday, March 28. Earnest Christians today are driven to evangelism. G. Ray Jordan (North Caro lina). Sunday, March 29. “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, 1 have kept the faith.” II Tim. 4:7. Herbert W. Ilahn (New York). Monday, March 30. “Not that I have secured it yet, or already reached perfec tion, but I am pressing on to see if I can capture it.” Phil. 3:12 (Goodspeed). Tuesday, April 1. i ”A workman that, needethi not to be ashamed.” II Tim. 2:15. Ida Mary Davis (Califor nia). Wednesday, April 2. ‘For our light: affliction . . . worketh for us . . . an eternal weight of glory.” II Cor. 4:17. William E. Sheath (Pennsylva nia). WORK! WORK! WORK! One of the most striking ar ticles in the Sunday Daily News to me is, * The Seven Sentence Sermons.” I usually cut them out for future refer ence. A few weeks ago I cut out one which struck me most forcible. It reads: “Absence of occupation is not rest, A mind quite vacant is a mind distressed.” Cowper. In one word Cowper says “Work.” Well, may we make this our slogan today, for the world needs more and more workers. There has always been plenty of work to do and few people to do it. Today the dile ma that the world at large is in all because of such conditions is worse than before. We can only hope that others will catch the gleam of the need of workers and put their shoulders to the wheel. In his book on “Work and Happiness” Dr. Frank Crane says, “For the fact is that the happiest People in the country are those that get up and go to wodk. The people that eat breakfast in bed and work when they feel like it, or not at all, are mostly seekers for trouble; yes, and finders there of.” Work is a cure for most evils. Discontent in any form breeds distaste for surroundings and those with whom we come in contact. But busy people have no time to think of themselves and their lack of the things that their hearts desire. It was not meant that we should have everything that we want but if we work, we can most assured THE FUTURE OUTLOOK. GREENSBORO, N. C ly have more than we have and be happy besides. Today as never before the laborer is coming to the fore front—he is in demand. And why not? On the shoulders of the laborer rests the burdens of the world. It is he who digs the foundation for our great buildings, he digs the ditches in which we place the pipes to carry our gasoline and other necessities of lift 1 , he does the menial chores of life and until l now many have attempted to high-hat him. A woman, who laundered clothes for a honest living has been classed almost to herself, but today the de mand for laborers is great and the reward is likewise great. High wages are inducing labor ers to hold their own, so if our government can recognize our basic builders, it beehoves us to do likewise. And greatest of all, Christ recognized the laborer. At one time lie said, "He that keepeth small shall neither slumber nor sleep.” He went about healing, raising the dead, teaching—all this was work. Let us then take pattern and “Work for the night is coining When man works no more.” grace luther memorial luth INTERNATIONA L SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON CHRIST STILL WITH U!
