at the rate of one drop of water every thousand years. By the time the en­ tire glacier had evaporated, one drop every thousand years, eternity would just barely have started. That’s what eternity is like, compared to time. What kind of an investment are you making for eternity? “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he medi­ tate day and night. And shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of wa­ ter, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the un­ godly shall not stand in the judg­ ment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord know- eth [approveth] the way of the right­ eous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish” (Psalm 1).

TEN LITTLE CHRISTIANS Ten little Christians standing in a line, One disliked the preacher; then there were nine. Nine little Christians stayed up very late, One slept Sunday morning; then there were eight. Eight little Christians on the road to Heaven, One took the lower road, then there were seven. Seven little Christians got into a fix, One disliked the music; then there were six. Six little Christians very much alive, But one lost her interest; then there were five. Five little Christians wishing there were more, But they quarreled; then there were four. Four little Christians cheerful as could be; But one lost his temper; then there were three. Three little Christians knew not what to do, One joined a sporting crowd; then there were two. Two little Christians— our rhyme is nearly done— Differed with each other; then there was one. One lone Christian won his neighbor true, Brought him to church; then there were two. Two earnest Christians each won one more, That doubled their number; then there were four. Four sincere Christians worked very late, But each won another; then there were eight. Eight splendid Christians . . . but nothing Rhymes with sixteen, so we simply note that In four more lines there would be one thousand Forty-two, a number which would fill most every single pew.
