enemies as any we had to fight over

"The American Legion can do a
wonderful service to the country by
encouraging a spirit of unity and co
operation, and by teaching foreigners
who come Into tho United States how
to live under a republican form of
government, and by helping them to
understand that ours Is a government
of tho people, by the people, for the
people and It shall not perish from
the earth. Many foreigners come from
countries where they have been op
pressed and they do not understand
the word liberty, but think it Is license
to commit crimes. These people must

can aid In doing this.

What Returns Does Christ Ruijulro of
The purpose of tills parable was to
correct the misapprehension of the
disciples as to the Inline Hate establish
ment of the kingdom. They were tin
the way to Jerusalem atid they thought
that immediately upon their arrival
there Jesus would bcgti the exercise
of Ills kingdom rule. It Is to ho
noted that Jesus did not correct them

dom, but for believing that it would
I. The Absent Lord (v. 12).
He pictures His going hack to God
as a nobleman going to teeelvo a king
dom, This was a comniiin occurrence
among them. They knew how some of
the Herodlan family had thus done
gone to Rome and secured their ap
pointment to rule over Palestine. Jesus
ascended on high to receive front God,
the Father, a kingdom. Let no ono
mistake the certainty cf His return,
though the time bo unknown, and tho
II. The Distribution of the Pounds
These pounds represent Christ's
gifts to Ills servants. When Chrlwt
ascended He gave gifts to men (Epb.
4:7, 8, 11, 12). To each servant was
given the same amount, showing tlict
to all a certain gift lus been given
and therefore ull will bo held responsl
ble for Its use. The distribution was
made by the sovereign. It was also a
purposeful distribution. They were to
put their gifts to use during His ab
sence. What the nobleman demanded
was faithfulness. The pounds were to
be used for the Master, not for tho
selfish enjoyment of the servant.
III. The Rebellious Citizens (v. 11).
They hated Him nnd sent messen
gers after Him, notifying Him of their
refusal to be subject to Him. This pic
tures the unbelief of the Jews after
Christ's nscennlon and their repudia
tion of His rule. It ulHqjiIeturcs tho
unbelieving world In Itn hatred and re
jection of Christ.
IV. The Accounting (vv. lfi-27).
1. Its Certainty. Christ will surely
bring everyone to account for the use
made of His gifts. He has appointed
a day in which He Khali Judge tho
world (Acts 17:.'U).
2. Time Of (v. Ifi). It will tako
place when Jesus coined back to earth.
At that time U will summon Ills
servants and reckon with them. This
will take place when He lias received
Ills kingdom. He wljl receive Ills
kingdom when he asks the Father (Ps.
