King's Business - 1922-11


T HE K I N G ’ S B U S I N E S S often we feel like treating them un­ kindly. Now Jesus said, when others are unkind to us, and do us harm, we must not do harm to them again.* In­ stead of this, we must do good to them, and pray for them, and love them; then, Jesus says, we are really His children. Now we cannot do this ourselves, hut we must have Jesus’ love in our hearts, and love and trust Him, for Jesus is kind even to those who ■do not obey Him or love Him. We remember how David acted toward King Saul, and would not harm him when he stood by his side while he and all his soldiers were sleeping. David loved God, and God’s love was filling David’s heart. Boys and girls, do y 6 u know that when we pray for people it helps us to love them. We have such a wonderful memory verse today. Let us say it to­ gether. I will say it first, and then you say it. “ Let us love one another.” Now boys and girls, listen, for I want 3» «g

you to hear what I am going to say. Can you think of some one that you do not like? Now this story we have heard this morning is about Jesus and the crowd who' were up in the mountain with Him, and the words are the words of Jesus, and if we really believe them, we will be willing to obey. Now if there is a single person that we do not like, even though he has; not been kind to us, let us pray for that person each day this week, and see if we can show him a kindness in some way. Now don’t forget for next Sunday morn­ ing I am going to ask you about it. I know it will be hard, but ask Jesus to help you. This'is one way to be happy. If we would always do this, we could be happy ourselves, and make others happy too. Closing Prayer. Dear Lord Jesus, help us to be kind and loving to every­ body we are with. ¡■¡S h S m .


G o ld e n Text.— This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 1 Tim. 1.15, LESSON TEXT Lu. 7:37-48. (Read Lu. 7:1-50; 15:1-32.)

them both. Tell me therefore, which of them w ill love him most? (43) Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave m ost, ‘ And he said unto him, Thou hast righ tly judged. (44) And he turned to the woman, and said unLo Simon,-- Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest-m e ne water fo r my feef: i but- she hath washed my , feet with tears, and w iped them with the hairs of her - head. (45) Thou gavest me no kiss: but- this woman since the tim^ I came in, hath not ceased to kiss my, feet. (46) My head w ith oil thou, didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with .o in t­ ment. (4?) W herefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which ar.e many, are- forgiven ; for she loved m u ch ;,bu t to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. (48) And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. .

(37) And behold, a woman in the city, which {was a sinner, when she ’knew th at'Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an ala­ baster box of ointment.
