YOUNU pi:opli: AND ADULT TOPIC
Slnco on October 8 we had a lesson
on the birth and childhood of Jesus,
many will uoulitless prefer to have
this nuw lesson Instead of the Christ
I. A Warning Against Covetousness
1. Thu Occasion (vv. 13-15). One of
the company requested Jesus to bo
:umplre In u disputed estate. Two
brothers were In trouble over nn In
heritance. Christ refused to enter the
sphere of thu civil law and warned
ugulnst thu spirit of avarice. Christ's
mission was preeminently spiritual.
2. Enforcement of the Warning (vv.
10-21). The parable of thu rich man
shows clearly that to be concerned
with earthly riches while neglecting
God Is the height of folly. The Lord's
warning Is of great Importance today;
for many are seeking gold and forget
ting God. Note (1) his Incrensu In
goods (v. 10). Ills riches were rightly
obtained, for the ground brought forth
plentifully. This shows that a man
i may be rich because of the Lord's
I blessing upon him. (2) Ills perplexity
I (v. 17). His land was producing more
j than his hums would hold. He did not
want It to go to wnste. If he and pos
' sessed tho right views of life and a
sense of stewardship before (Sod. he
I would have seen that his barns at least
I had enough for his personal nml.s and
that he could have distributed his stir
I plus to the needy and for benevolent
purposes. (.'!) The fatal choice (vv.
18, 10). He chose to enlarge his
. barns and give up his life to ease and
I luxury. It ought to be a delightful '
'task for men whom God huts made
rich to devote their time and energy
to the distribution of their possessions
to benevolent purposes. (4) The aw
ful Indictment (vv. 20, 21). God calls
him n fool.
II. The Certain Cure for Anxiety
Having shown the folly of the rich
man who gained gold hut lost God, He
now urged the disciples to trust God
nnd dismiss all nnxlous care. He as
sured them that they need not he anx
ious even for the necessities of life.
1. The Argument (vv. 22, 2.1). This
Is summed up In one brief sentence:
"The llf.e Is more than food, and tho
body Is more than raiment." Tlie God
who gnve the life and made the body
should he trusted to provide food and
clothing. ' a
2. The Illustrations (vv. 24-28). (1)
God's cure for the fowls (vv. 24-20).
The ravens do not sow nor reap they
have not storehouse or ham, yet they
live, for God feeds them. If God does
not forget the fowls, certainly He ,
would do more for His children. (2)
God's care for the flowers- of the field
(vv. 27. 28). If God Is so careful of
thosq flowers which appear hut for a
day, how much more will He clothe
Ills children I
3. The Exhortations (vv. 20-3-1). (1)
Make not the getting of food nnd
clothes your chief concern. Trust God
to provide them. (2) Seek the king
dom of God (v. 31). Those who make
God's kingdom llrst shall have nil their
needs supplied (Phil. 4:10). (3) Ho
not nfruld (v. 32). God's good pleas
ure Is upon Ills own, and all good
things will He give them. (4) Prac
tice solf-denlnl In order to be able to
give gifts to those In need (vv. 33, 34).
The doing of such deeds will lend to
lift the thoughts upward to Ood to
III. Be Ready for the Coming of tho
Lord (vv. 3.T-40).
Having warned the disciples against
the acquisition of worldly goods while
forgetting God, and shown them the
Heedlessness of anxiety for food and
clothes, He shows them the blessed
iicbs of being In a state of readiness
when the Lord shnll come. Convic
tion as to the certainty of the Lord's
coining Is the sure cure for worhlllnesH
nnd anxious enre. This nttltude of
heart Ho made clear by two pnrablcs
that of the returning of the Lord and
that of the thief. The Lord will he so
pleased with those who nre waiting
for lllm that He will take delight in
sitting nt the banquet with them, und
even servo them. The paraDlo or the
thief shows that the time of the Lord's
coming Is not known.
I count all things hut loss for the
excellency of the knowledge of Christ
Jesus mv Lord: If by any means I
might attain unto. the resurrection of
the deail.-MMilllpplnns 3:8-11.
