THE CONSISTENCY OF LIFE.
Jesus was a master of assemblies,
according to Goo. E. Burlingame,
who spoke at th First Baptist
church last night and when a man
crowd to whichetaoihrdluetaoicmfwy
crowd to which Jesus was talking,
and rudely interrupted the dis
course with a selfish demand, the
Master took the intruder for a text
and gave one of His most searching
and powerful messages with this hap
less fool as a horrible example.
It was a matter of getting what
the man claimed belonged to him, of
his father's estate, which his brother
refused to surrender. "Master, speak
to my brother that he divide the in
heritance with me!" "Who made Me
a judge or a divider over you?" re
plied Jesus and then, suffering the
presumptuous interruption to go un
rebuked, He turned to the crowd and
remarked. "Look out and be on your
guard against covetousness for a
man's life consistenth not in the
abundance of the things which he
One of His marvellous stories fol
lowed to illustrate the truth He had
just set forth: the dramatic parable
ot" the rich man whose barns had to
be pulled down and enlarged to care
for his hoarded wealth, and who said
to himself, "Soul, thou hast much
goods laid up for many years take
thine oase, eat. drink and he merry."
He counted life to consist, in things.
Success was to be measured wholly in
tennis of a man's material posses
sions. To have a competence, to be
economically independent, to have
treasure hoarded on earth: 'This Is
the life!' With matchless skill Je
sus drew the picture of this man's
carnal content, and then with a sud
den flash of the imagination the sky
darkens and the storm break: "But
God said, Thou foolish one, this night
they are demanding your soul and
the things that you have gat lu red
for yourself, who gets them?"
The story ended, and, perhaps
turning toward the cowering money
grubber before Him. He drew to
the conclusion' "So is every one
that layeth up tr^asurv for himself,
and is not rich concerning God." A
man's life consists not in what he
has of wealth but what he baa of
