Bible School Sunday, July 9 "Jeroboam. A Man with a Great Opportunity" T King 11:26-40. The history of Jeroboam is very brief; we know nothing of his early life; he was from the tribe of Eph rnim, lived in Zaredah, his mother's r.nme was Zernah a widow. As King Solomon built the temple, which took several years, his own bouse Avas thirteen years in build ing; all this and many other pub lic, enterprises required much man rower, which was compulsory, or forced labor without pay. That was the order of that time so were the pyramids in Egypt built. While the tribe of Ephram was call ed for their share of forced labor, this young man Jeroboam was among them; as Solomon observed tli it man at work, he beheld a mighty man of valor and ery indus trious no shirker, no eye server this made him foreman over the vorkers while rebuilding Millo. Here ve read between the lines, and al though we have no record of a re bellion at this time, we surmise that Jeroboam stirred up the Eph ranites, that they became dissatisfied, y being forced to work for noth ing, no pay. When Solomon found out who was fomenting and causing this condition, he tried to kill Jero boam, who being apprised of Solo mon's intention, fled- into Egypt and remained there until after the death of Solomon. While Jeroboam was in Solomon's favor, he had many op portunities to arouse his tribe to re bellion until he was found out. This was a misuse of his opportuni ties, so he lost his job. Now, the scene changes. One day as Jeroboam left Jerusalem on a business trip, he met a prophet of Jehovah. Abijah of Shiloh like Saul met by Samuel. A strange act followed there were no witnesses to this scene the prophet had sup plied himself with a new coat, but he takes it up and tears it into twelve pieces, and bids Jeroboam to pick up ten pieces, saying that the Kingdom will be divided because of d!f obedience' of Solomon whom God had promised a long life and an abiding kingdom. In his address, Atijah made practically the same promises to Jeroboam whom God Miss Beatrice Chapman who was severely injured in an auto collision last Sunday evening was taken to the Clarkson hospital in Omaha where she was given treatment, is reported as gettin galong fairly well. The Hobson ambulance of Weeping Water came and took her to the hos pital. With Dr. G. H. Gilmore and the parents she was cared for at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Theile Sunday night. Has Beautiful Home Retreat. At the home of Walter J. Wunder lich and wife and her father, D. C. West, in the rear of which there is a beautiful woodland, they have turned the same into a very beauti ful park with tables, benches and a platform with a tree house for the bovs. Jack and Bobbie, and which with the care and work make it an inviting place to rest and enjoy the coolness of the shade when the days are hot. Electric lights are installed for night and also places for radio which makes a delightful place for meetings. Recently the Chamber of Commerce of Nehawka enjoyed a pleasant evening there in the woods which made a very fine place for their supper. Enjoyed Family Gathering. The J. H. 6teffens family enjoyed a get together at the Steffens home last Sunday, there being there for the occasion the parents of Mr. Steffens, Mr. and Mrs. C. Steffens of Lorton, Mrs. Mollie Magney, mother of Mrs. Steffens, Frank Horstman and family of Talmage, Albert Anderson and wife of Nehawka. Laverne Steffens and Maxine of Nehawka, which made a very happy family get-together for a very fine dinner. Miss Margaret Steffens of Chicago, a graduate nurse, was also present to enjoy the occa sion. Married at Lincoln Saturday. Miss Violet Chappell, daughter of Louis Chappell of Nehawka, who has been making her home in Lincoln, was united in marriage to M. R. Dudman last Saturday. They will make their home in Lincoln where the husband is employed by a con struction company. Both of the contracting parties are excellent young people and have a host of friends who are pleased to extend congratulations and best wishes for their future happiness and prosper ity. Lesson Study! By L. Neitzel, Murdock, Neb. used to punish Solomon, and who was given a rare opportunity of be coming one of God's noblemen, and have his name in the hall of fame. (See Heb. 11). In the address of Abijah to Jeroboam we should no tice the following fundamental ideas: (1) The sin of Solomon is definately specified; (2) The piety of David is remembered; (3) The necessity for the fulfillment of the scriptures Is emphasized; (4) Not much is made or the goodness of Jeroboam. "This emission is significant. It suggests that the Ephranite was used only as an instrument of Providence for the punishment of sinners, and for this service had the reward of his ambitions. Therefore the success of cur desires in this world is no cer tain proof either of our goodness or of God's favor. But in respect to his service, God gave Jeroboam a glor ious opportunity by goodness to make himself great like David. What orportunities does God graciously vouchsave to us!" J. A. MacDohald. The division of the Kingdom was a divine act; it was the breaking up of a divine institution. The divine potter, like mere human artisans, has the spoiled pieces of work, and with infinite resources and patience as infinite reshapes the clay into other forms. God works out his pur poses through men's deeds and his motives determine whether their ats are sins or obedience. "A .man may be a rebel while he Is doing the will of God, if what he does be done at the bidding of his own selfish ness." Alexander Maclaren. Jeroboam did not use his oppor tunities to become a great man; he rnther misused them to the injury of himself and his kingdom. Men in high stations in nations and life are doing every day what Jeroboam did. What a terrible thing it is to make others sin. Every man has enough to answer for his own deeds, let alone to cause others to sin. This epitaph stands in bold relief over Jeroboam's tomb: "Here lies the man that made Isvael to Bin." Sin yourself, if you will sin. But, as you would have a drop of water to cool your tongue in that torment: rlo not make other men to sin. So Jeroboam, who made Israel to sin, though dead, yet speaketh. Weeping Water Mr. and Mrs. Rogers and children, of Waco, were guests of Rev. and Mrs. W. D. Lenker for the Fourth.
