Deli Vyred in presbyterian Chereb cola i romans xiii., 8 owe no Man any thing but to love one another Benjamin Franklin that eminent american who spoke out of the sex. Peri enee of a remarkable life once said rather go to bed supper less than Rise in most right thinking people dislike1 to be in debt they fear to default they dread sustained financial liability if More people worked toward an honest Independence rather than fall into a too easily obtained parasitical luxury it would prove the making of Marjy of them bodily and mentally. The word of god commands the pay ment of All just dues. Owe no Man anything says the apostle Paul in the words of our text. There Are those with whom we come into Contact who look upon such a course of action As foolish. They consider full payment except under compulsion As waste to themselves they never come up to the Standard of Freedom from debt and thus fall Short of this injunction to owe no Man anything. Our text however goes much fur ther than this. From a worldly Point of View we must owe nothing from spiritual Point of View we must owe a Good Deal. There is a debt which the Christian myst always be paying but can never fully discharge. It is the debt of love let your says Paul that .5 unpaid be that of facing these two different kinds of debt there Are four different kinds of people. First there Are those who. Neither recognise nor pay either form of debt. They will not respond financially and they will not respond in love. They Are frequently the outcasts of society at War with their Fellows preying upon the Best elements of the Community and eventually falling Back upon the help of our Public institutions. In the next place thera Are those who meet their financial debts splendidly. They Pride themselves on their probity. They sometimes raise integ Rity to the status of a religion but they Are not likable people. They re Pel by their general attitude to life and they antagonise by their Lack of love. In the third class there Are those who do honestly strive to pay the debt of love but they Are continually in trouble concerning ajl other debts. You know them Good Well meaning but shiftless and incompetent they Are never knowing exactly where financially they stand and constantly securing the sympathy of others through their winsome dispositions and to Vawn characters. These people Are a problem for while on. The one hand they help to build up a Good pause thus receiving commendation in the other hand they break Dow. Right principles and leave themselves open to hostile criticism. But there is still � fourth class those who fulfil All the conditions and meet All responsibilities. They Are people to be thisted whose word is their Bond whose Hames Are honoured by All. They owe nothing except love and they accept this Foi ritual debt As a lifelong responsibility. It can never fully be. Discharged. It is the debt of love. Owe no Man. Any thing hut to Jove one or As it appears in or. Moffatt s translation be in debt to no Man apart from the debt of love on to in other. He who loves his fellow Man hath fulfilled the How can we discharge at least some thing of this debt of love we meet one another. We rub shoulders against one another. It sometimes come into conflict with one another and All the time we Are called to discharge this debt. On Way we can do it is by cutting out All Unk Jred. Criticism in our lives. Some one has aptly put together a few dont a for difficult people. 1 Don t be inquisitive regarding the affairs of others. 2 Don t repeat gossip even. If it does Reeni interesting for much harm is done that Way. 3 Don t underrate wha j others possess because you do not possess it your self. 4 Don t complain that you have no opportunities in life. 5 Don t make Light of another ran s re Ligion. It is his he has been trained in it. He knows no other unless you recommend yours silently by Dis charging the debt of love. We mov Frame a few More debt s ourselves but the More we Frame the piss we remember and the less / other people attend. The positive Wiy is the better. And Jesus Rose above the of testament prohibition by saying t his disciples thou Shalt love the lord thy god with All thy heart ape with All thy soul and with All the mind and thy Neighb in is thyself this brings about a positive Atmos. Phere of uplift in which it is easy to do one s Best in life. It is related o or. John Watson better known to Many people tinder his pen name o Tan Maclaren that at the beginning e his career he was assistant to a minis Ter in Scotland who chilled him Witt negative counsels and cold criticism he Couke make no headway in the pulpit or in his pastoral work unt he was later inducted to a Church a gle Nalmond he still halted Hihi pulpit delivery but the people Weri behind him with their sympathy Phi on old Highlander said to him of Sun Day morning after a difficult service if you he a wettin stuck for a word sir. Or a thought just give out � prawn and Well sing it. For we Are All a lovin you and a praying for tha atmosphere made John Watson a not a preacher. And now we ask what is the driving Power toward the payment of the debt of love when people own Mone the motive Power toward payment j their sense of hot our and the Motif Power in this higher debt is of knowledge of god s love to us. If w dwell in thought on thl our love naturally and unconscious Wells up and our gratitude finds expression.
