PREPARIG FOR BLESSIG— EXAMPLE BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR For none of us liveth to himself, and none dieth to himself. Romans 14: 7. o life can be pure in its purpose and strong in its strife, And all life not be purer and stronger thereby.  — Owen Meredith. o drop but serves the slowly lifting tide, o dew, but has an errand to some flower. o smallest star, but sheds some helpful ray.  — Unknown Author. X living a life of sin^ directly and indirectly, we wrong others as well as ourselves. o man has a right to set a bad example; no mart can live for himself. Every act is far-reaching in its immediate influence and in its ulti- mate consequences. One wrong act may start a circle of influences which will reach to eternity as a pebble dropped into the quiet lake starts ever widening circles which reach the shore. This is a tremendous thought. It makes life real and terrible, if it is a life of sin; it makes life rich and glorious, if it be spent in the service of God. The guilt of one involves many in its consequences. If a man could sin and suff'er alone, sin would still be bad enough; but since the innocent must suff'er with the guilty^ sin be- comes unspeakably sinful and terrible. The law which has its illustration in these experiences is universal and immu- table as gravitatioit.
Lord Jehovah! behold, Thou hast made the heaven and the earth by Thy great power and by Thine outstretched arm; there is nothing too hard for Thee, who showest loving kindness unto thousands, and recompensest every one ac- cording to His ways and according to the fruit of His doings. Amen. Jer. 32: 17, 18, 19. 174. ROYAL MESSAGES 6-22 Jesus said unto them, if God were your Father, ye would love me; for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but He sent Me. John 8: 42. So, the all-great were the all-loving too, So, through the thunder comes a human voice, Saying, "Oh heart I made a heart beat here; Face, my hands fashioned, see it in myself, Thou hast no strength, nor mayest conceive of mine. But love I gave Thee, with myself to love, And Thou must love me Who have died for Thee!"  — Robert Browning. ^T^E ought as students of literature and life to account VL/ for Jesus the Christ. We strive to account for some of the remarkable characters of history. Are we not un- der the strongest possible obligation to account for Jesus Christ? His life cannot be explained on any principle of heredity. We admit the royal element in his blood, although the fortunes of his family had fallen before his birth; but no law of heredity will account for the physical attractive- ness, the mental superiority, and the moral purity of Jesus the Christ. either will environment account for his marvel- ous career and character. The stream of his life flowed
through the human race on a higher level, and rose to a vastly higher point than any other stream known to human* history or divine revelation. How shall we account for the height to which that stream rose? If we admit his divine origin, all his life is easily explainable. Father, glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee: even as Thou gavest Him authority over all flesh that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He should give eternal life, and this is life eternal, that they should know Thee the only true God, and Him whom Thou didst send, even Jesus Christ. Amen. John 17: i, 2, 3. 6-23 DIVIE CHRIST— BLESSED GIVIG 175 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give into your bosom. Luke 6: 38. For we must share if we would keep, That good thing from above, Ceasing to give, we cease to have Such is the law of love.  — Rt. Rev. Richard Chenevix Trench. CHE ile never gives Egypt its richest blessings until the waters overflow their banks. We dare not keep the water of life to ourselves. If the living water be in us a well of water springing up unto everlasting life, these waters will flow out from us to refresh homes, communities, and nations. As David's men risked life and limb to grat-
