LESSON FOR MAY 5.
POVERTY AND RICHES.
LESSON THXT-T.k. G:2fl-:e nnrt 10:19-31.
OOI-DKN TEXT "A ninn's Ufa eon-d.
itctli not In tho nlmmlnncn of tho things
'hi) powcsBOth." Luke 12:15.
Last week wo wcro studying tho fun
damental principles of this new king
dom Jesus enmo to cstnbllsh. Today
our Btudy presents another or uis
Booming pnrndoxes, viz., tho blessed
ncss or the happiness of poverty, hun
ger and persecution. Spoken primari
ly to tho twelve, Jesus Intended theso
words for all tho people present nnd
prospective. Jopus Is distinctly tho
poor man'B friend. Ho knew tho mean
ing of hunger nnd thrlst, of weeping
nnd mourning, and so contrasts tho
Joy that Bhnll bo to theso "happy ones"
with tho "woo" that shall como to
thoso who from out of their Joy and
their abundance fall to respond to tho
needs of mankind.
What It Is and Why.
Tho last half of the leBBon Is intend
ed to illustrato tho teachings of tho
first. Let vb look nt the illustration.
"A certain rich man." Ho wns not
or sulllclcut lmportnnco even to men
tion his name. How few rich mon over
succeed in really perpetuating their
names. Not one succeeds in any menu
uro nt alt except as in sotno munnor
ho emulates the life and teachings of
Jesus. How few monuments realty
perpetuate names. Character alono Ib
what lives. This rich man, however,
did not lose out Blmply becnuso ho was
a rich man. Verse 25 tells us why he
was in anguish. His llfo had been that
of a selfish seeker and ho had had
his reward. Now conditions have
changed. Once clothed in purpto and
faring sumptuously, now ho is the
beggar. Ignoring the cry of need nt
his gate now he Ib compelled to make
his cry afnr off.
"A certain beggar named Lazarus."
It is better to be a beggar vainly
seeking a few crumbs and to rest in
Abraham's bosom than- to live in lux
urious ease, ignoring the cry of the
needy and to live in hell hereafter.
Lazarus did not gain glory hereafter
becauso he was a beggar, but rather
because of his character. Angels an
nounced the coming of the Son of
Man, angels welcomed tho returning
of this son of mankind. Which of the
twain, Dives or Lazarus, really enjoyed
life? Eternity is a long time, It begins
where im'aginatlon ends. Tho name
Lazarus really means "God-helps" and
God always does help the poor.
Lazarus had some frlcndB for we
read that tho dogs showed their sym
pathy. It is always true that thoso
poor as poverty aro most ready to re
spond to the cry of need, and out of
their penury will glvo tho most abun
dantly to relieve distress.
Leaves All Behind.
"Tho rich man died also." Thus
ended his llfo of easo nnd luxury for
shrouds have no pockets. "How much
did ho leave? He loft it nil." All of
his loved ones, nit of his hopes wero
left behind. There Is.Bomething np
pallingly sad in tho death of a rich
man who trusts only to his wealth,
having no faith In God. Millions for a
moment of'tlmo. The sarcusm 'of
Jesus' words is quite apparent, "and
ho was burled." Only a clod of earth,
no longer useful, of tho earth, earthy,
bury htm, get him out of sight. But
did this end all? vBy no meanB,
for when he reached the other Bide
he did not lose consciousness nor
reason. No soul sleeping there. He
taw, he observed, he felt, he remem
bered, he reasoned. Back upon earth
he had brothers who were following
his same mode ot life. Here he was
suffering, crying for "mercy," for an
alleviating touch ot cold water, yet In
that cry there was no note of repent
ance. Ho and his brethren had lived
tor the tongue and had pampered it,
now it, the seat of taste, of bold words,
etc.. Is crying for cooling relief. But
would those fcohlnd repent even If one
were to rise from the dead? No, ex
cept that they might escape a like tor
ment. The desires of their hearts
would bo the same. Being out of
state's prison Is ot Itself no particular
honor. The message of Jesus strikes
deeper than outward forms and cere
monies. It is the heart motive where
by we are to be Judged. Dives sought
to excuse or to Justify himself (v. 60),
but Abraham tells h,lm plainly that
both ho and his brethren had had suf
ficient light. If they will not listen to
Moses (the Pentatouch) and to tho
prophets neither will they repent even
though one came from the dead. That
being so how much greater condemna
tion must rest upon those who reject
him, who is greater than theso? Ono
who js a greater witness to the mercy
and love'of God.
The disciples were poor in both thla
world's goods and one of them, Mat
thew, adds that tho happy ones aro,
thoso who are poor in spirit als6. They,
know tho meaning of hunger and of
privation and were ready to learn of
him. Jesus is not so much in this il
lustration trying to give us a picture;
ot the hereafter, of the future llfo aa
bo is to show the results of our living
in this present llfo. He shows us
-plainly that there ace different states
over there and that these states are
the1 result of our conduct in the Ufa
we now live. Riches are n temptation,
a temptation to gain fraudulently.
