Armies Like Stuffed Effigy
of a Prehistoric Monster
The armies of 1914 had more than two months of grace before they lapsed into the stagnation of trench warfare. Nowadays the proportion of machine guns and other automatic firearms has increased enormously.
It is thus a safe deduction and prediction that the armies of today would sink into trenches within a week—if they ever got to grips—for there is more than a possibility that these infantry bodies would be dispersed by air attack or hamstrung by the bombing of their transport while they were still groping forward.
The more one reflects upon the present type of armies, which is still the prewar type, with a few additions, the more do they appear like the stuffed museum effigy of some prehistoric monster—harmless if horrl-rying.—B. H. Liddell Hart in Current History.

INNER ^ WAX A BAG

As long as a man sees and believes in some great good, he’ll prefer working towards that in the way he’s best fit for, come what may.—George Eliot.
In this chapter Luke pictures Jesus freely mingling with his fellowmen in worship and social intercourse. While thus freely mingling with his fellowmen, he was aware of their inner hostility to him and set forth under the parable of the great supper the sinful folly of men who reject his gracious offer of salvation.
I. The Great Supper (v. 16).
This great supper represents God’s
gracious provision of salvation through the vicarious atonement of Jesus Christ. Christ himself declared that he was the bread of life. As bread is to the physical body, so Is Jesus Christ to the soul. It is called a supper because it is the last meal of the day. Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death is God’s last effort for the salvation of men. The one who misses supper goes hungry through the night; the one who neglects and rejects the gracious offer of salvation In Jesus Christ shall forever perish. It is a great supper because its provision was made In the counsels of the eternal Godhead. It was wrought out by the Son of God and avails for the salvation of all races and kindred and tongues. There is no one whose sinful condition debars him from this precious feast.
II. The Gracious and Urgent Invitation (w. 16, 17).
These words, “Come; for all things are now ready,” reveal the attitude of God toward a sinning race. Truly it is not the will of God that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. His servants have been going up and down the world for tnou-sands of years saying to men dead In trespasses and sins, perishing for want of the bread of life, “Come; for all things are now ready.” God is never behind time. There is absolutely nothing lacking in his provision for needy souls. The only thing demanded of the hungry and dying world is that it accept his urgent invitation. Man’s responsibility is to receive Jesus Christ. All who accept his iuvitation are assured of a welcome at his table.
III. Men’s Attitude Toward God’s Gracious Invitation (vv. 18-20).
“They all with one accord began to make excuse.” They feigned a willingness to come, but their excuses showed that they were completely absorbed in selfish interests and, therefore, disregarded the invitation of the divine Host. This is a vivid picture of the reception which men are everywhere giving the gospel.
1. The first one was taken up with the buying of land. On this account he begged to be excused. Supper time is a poor time to go to see a piece of ground. Besides, he had already bought the ground and, therefore, he was under no necessity of going to see it at supper time.
2. The second man desired to be excused in order that he might test a yoke of oxen which he had bought. Supper time is not a proper time to test oxen. Then, too, he had already bought them; therefore, there was no urgency in testing them.
3. The third excuse was perhaps the flimsiest of all. In all probability his wife would have been glad to accompany him. It Is to be noted that the excuses made are plausible, as they concern things that are right in themselves. It is right for a man to have land, have oxen, and live with a wife, hut when these legitimate Interests crowd out God and the things of the Spirit, they are to be ignored.
IV. Guests From the Highways and Hedges (vv. 21-24).
1. The anger of the master of the house (v. 21). It should not be forgotten that God, while great in mercy, is capable of anger toward those who reject his mercy. It is a great mistake to remove anger from the character of God. To reject his mercy exposes to his fierce anger.
2. The Lord’s house filled (vv. 21-23). The places of the very ones who were first bidden were filled with other guests, some of them poor and helpless, from the lanes and streets of the city and others the vagrants from the highways.
3. The awful condition of those first bidden (v. 24). The master of the house declares that none of them shall taste of his supper. Since the supper represents the free grace and mercy of Jesus Christ, to refuse him is to be eternally deprived of the high privilege of Bitting at the Master’s table.

There Are Two Paths
in Love and Friendship
One path leads downward, with pride and folly, selfishness and lust as guides, toward the earthly, the sensual, and at last the devilish. The other leads upward, with purity and honor, generosity and self-sacrifice as guides, toward the celestial, the Ideal, the God like.
Love is a fire, sometimes it kindles a harbor light to guide the heart to peace; sometimes it kindles s false beacon to lure the heart to wreck. There is a friendship which saves and there is a friendship which ruins.

Why We Are Lonely
Loneliness is often our own fault We have not brought others enough into our own life, or we have repelled others by making too many claims upon them, or by seeking too much sym patliy for ourselves.—Stopford A. Brooke.
As the presence of salt is not so noticeable as its absence, so the good are most appreciated whan they art gone.
