One of the company whose mind had wan­ dered from sacred things . interrupted with, “Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me” (Lk. 12:13). Money—possessions—con­ stituted this man’s goal. So absorbed had his mind become with money that even a glorious promise of power from on high did not stir him. We deplore this man’s blindness, but how like him today are the millions who have wealth for their goal! To them, success is measured solely by dollars. “How much is he worth?” they ask. The Lord Jesus uttered the solemn warning which is just as much needed today as then: “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life con- slsteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” (Lk. 12:15). The two injunctions are urgent warnings. “Take heed,” that is, study, consider, weigh, decide. “Beware,” or avoid, be on your guard, be careful

how He must yearn over the unreached multitudes today! “Here am I; send me.” $ “ S owing " in A gricultural M issions The present Moderator of the Gen­ eral Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. (1939-40) is Dr. Sam Higginbottom, President of Alla­ habad Christian College in India. His early experience as a missionary in India convinced him that the solution to India’s famine and poverty lay in modem, farming methods. He returned to the United States in 1911 to take special work in agriculture at Ohio State University. Returning to India, to put his knowledge to work, he bought several hundred acres of the worst land he could find to prove that by proper methods of farming even' such land could -be made productive. His work in agricultural missions has made Sam Higginbottom (a layman, by the way) one of the foremost missionaries in ihe world.—A Year of Meeting's, published by the International Society of Christian Endeavor. n .

Questions for Discussion 1. What problems does the agricul tural or industrial missionary face in his need for keeping foremost the story of Christ’s salvation for men’s souls ? 2. What would happen to us if we really obeyed the commands of the Lord Jesus as found in John 4:35 and Matthew 9:38? APRIL 28, 1940 DOLLARS— HAPPINESS— OR W H A T ? L uke 12:15-21; M atthew 6:19-21 Meditation on the Lesson Our general theme for the next two meetings is “Making Life Count.” What do We consider valuable? Why are we living? What is our goal? These and similar questions must be pondered and answered if we are to make our lives count. Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, knowing so well what was in men’s hearts even without their speaking, warned His hearers concerning the vanity of tem­ poral things and described the value of the eternal.
