DILIGECE— TRUE LIGHT BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR There was the true light, even the light which lighteth every man, coming into the world. John i: 9. Thou who art Light, shine on each soul: Thou who art Truth, each mind control, Open our eyes and make us see The path, which leads to heaven and Thee.  — John Hay. CHE light of Christ in the gospel is bright, but not daz- zling; it is warm, but not scorching. The incarna- tion of Christ enables us to look without blindness upon his person. We could not gaze upon the unclouded glories of the Son of God. He dwells in light to which no man can approach; in His presence even the angels veil their faces. His incarnation for a time drew a cloud across the face of the sun; he laid aside his glory in consenting to become the child of the manger. This temporary conceal- ment of his glory was a part of his voluntary humiliation. In marvellous condescension he became a babe honoring the cradle, a boy glorifying boyhood, and a man exalting manhood to the divine standard ; and now we may gaze with mingled love and admiration upon the lineaments of di- vinity, softened as they are seen in the mirror of humanity. O Come into that mellowed light to-day! Make Jesus the object of your loving contemplation, and his glory shall shine in your face.

Is. 25: 9. 204 ROYAL MESSAGES 7-22 He that loveth father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. Matt. lo: 37. Let us be patient, God has taken from us The earthly treasures upon which we leaned, That from the fleeting things that lie around us, Our clinging hearts should be forever weaned.  — Helen L. Parmlee. MA may put his wife and his children on the throne of his heart and give them the love and devotion due to God alone. We cannot love our families too much if we love them as God's gift, and look past the gift to the great Giver. But if God is dethroned, and any creature is en- throned in his place, we need not be surprised that our homes are shaken and our idols broken. From your arms and hearts God may take those you love the most, if you give them the love that belongs to him alone. In so doing, God will be rendering the greatest possible service to you as his child. Let us be sure God is conferring the richest blessing possible upon us in giving us needed discipline. Men slumber on the edge of a precipice; he is their true friend who awakens them before their destruction is com- plete. So God in withholding and withdrawing what seems
