MICAH CHAMPIONS THE OP
LESSON TEXT—Micah 2.1-3; 3:1-12;
GOLDEN TEXT—He hath shewed
thee, O man, what is good; and what
doth the Lord require of thee, but to
do Justly, and to love mercy, and to
walk humbly with thy God7 Micah #:8.
PRIMARY TOPIC—Micah Tells How
to Please God.
JUNIOR TOPIC- What God Re
quires of 17s.

YOUNG PEOPI.E AND ADULT TOP- I
I. Evil Workers Denounced (2:1-3).
1. How they worked (v. 1). Their
evil work was not a matter of Impulse,
but of deliberate purpose.
a. They gave themselves to the de
vising of wicked schemes.
b. They worked evil npon thelt
beds. They not only deliberately gave
themselves up to the devising of
wicked schemes, but used the qulel
liours of the night while honest peo
ple were sleeping for planning ways ol
accomplishing their wicked schemes.
c. They executed their plans In the
morning light They did what their
wtrked minds devised.
2. What they did (v. 2).
a. They coveted fields (v. 2). In
this they violated the tenth command
b. They violently took away field*
and houses (v. 2). A noteworthy ex
ample Is found In the case of Ahab
taking Naboth’s vineyard. This 1n
turn Is an apt picture of the monop
olists of today taking possession of
land, oil, gold, silver, and other com
c. They oppressed men and their
* houses (v. 2). By house here is meant
a man’s descendants, that Is, the in
heritors of his property.
3. Their punishment (▼. S). Against
such evil-doers righteous retribution la
being devised and shall fail! upon the
wicked with such weight as to humbla
II. Upon Whom Judgment Shall
1. The unfaithful rulers (tt. 1-4).
Because of lore for the evil and a
hatred for the good, the rulers mer
cilessly destroyed the people.
2. The false prophets (tt. 5-S).
They served for hire. As long as sap
plied with food, they prophesied te
please the people.
Ml. The Judgment Which Wee te
Fall (tt. 9-12).
Jerusalem was destroyed because of
the sins of the people. Just as the
righteous retribution then fell, we are
assured that there will he no escape
from the coming Judgment for those
who destroy the people.
IV. God's Controversy With Hie
Wicked men may go oji to a certain
time with their schemes, but eventual
ly they will be obliged to gtTe’an ac
count to God. 4
1. The hills and mountains are
called to bear witness against Israel
(v. 2). The people had turned a deaf
ear to God, so that the Inanimate
creation was called to witness against
them. The whole realm of nature
bears witness to the fact ef God’s be
ing and his goodness.
2. The guilty to be left to state the
case (v. 3). Through the prophet,
God, the King of the Universe, abdi
cates kls rights and allows his sinning
people to make charges against him.
The one who has right on his side
fears no argument. *
3. God recounts his mercies unto
the people (tt. 4. 5). Having called
for the charge end none having been
brought, the Lord thrusts home upon
their conscience the memory of his
great mercies unto them.
a. He’brought them eut of Egyptian
bondage (v. 4.) He has done even
‘more for us who were under bondage
to sin aDd Satan.
b. He sent before them a trio of
lenders (v. 4). Moses the lawgiver,
Aaron the high priest, and Miriam
v the prophetess were sent as his wit
c. Turned Balak’s curse Into a
blessing througli Balaam (v. 5).
4. God's requirements (vv. <*-18).
a. The great question. "Wherewith
ahull I come before the Lord?” (r.
8). The Jews could not deny the
charge brought against them by the
Almighty. They could make no plea
for justification. .
b. The complete answer (v. 8). (1)
“To do justly." Striet equity was to
characterize all their de»’iugs with
tlioir fellow men. C2) 'To love mercy.”
The heart is to lie diligently set to do
good to our fellows, especially the
needy and dependent. (3) "To walk
humbly with thy God." r To recognize
that they were sinners before God,
that they had no claim upon him.
Honor Your God
“More f an conquerors” means not
ni'ty to win your battle and save your
territory, but to do honor to your Cap
tain an<J. your God, to be a credit to
your cause, and so to acquit yourself
in the campaign that God shall be glor
ified.—A. B. Simpson.

By R. A. Adams ;
(For the Literary Service Bureau)
There is abundant truth in the de
claration: "Reributive Justice is con
stantly at he heels of ever)’ evil-doer."1
The inference is that no matter how
fleet may be the evader, he purser will
enevitably overtake him.
This ruth was manifest in the death
of a once prominent physician, the other
daft:. Once he wfis rich, prominent,
prosperous, pepuar, and hopeful, with a
bright future before him. He lived in
a large city. Ho numbered his friends
by the thousands. He died in an ob
scure town where for twenty years he'd
lived in seclusion. almost incognito.
And he actually died, “Unwept, unhon-J
ored and unsung."
Thin man as a young^physician want
ed to be rich. He wooed and won the
daughter of a multi-millionaire. Her
family hod no faith in him and used
every means to prevent the marrige
Ab thousands before her had done, the
girl sacrificed on the altar of love j
and bceame estranged from her family
Even her mother severed all communi
cations with her.
This physician, so it was charged i
and so the world believed, undertook
to murder the entire family of his
wife so as to get control of all of * he i
millions. Her father died, then her fa
ther’s brother, and her own brother.
It was practicsfljly proved that this
doctor had mpintjained a culture of
typhoid germs—as a matter of re
search, he claimed. It was discovered
that all three of the persons who had
died eo suspiciously had been given
such germs from which death resulted.
This man was three times tried for
murder, and his murder millions pre
vented conviction. The civil law gave
up; he was released and allowed to go
free. In all his wife stood by him
and his attitude sent her mother pre
maurely o her grave. A few years
afterward,, the wife secured a divorce
j and the custody of the two children.
The doctor faded out of the picture
Yes, the murder-millions beat the law.
The civil law gave up. But retributive
injustice was restless and inexorable.

CONVENTION AT JACKSON, MISS.
By Rev. Burckhardt
I arrived in Omaha Friday, Aug. 24.
after an extended trip through the
Southland, Jackson, Mias, being the ob
Jectlve point, where the church of Christ
was holding a great convention.
I left Omaha Tuesday evening, and
my first stop enroute was Burlington.

hardt. While there I was guest of Dr,
J. E, Johnson and wife, Dr, Johnson
is one of the leading pediatrist of the
State of Iowa, and they have a fine
home im the residental district of Burl
ington. His wife la known throughout
the city for hea art work, both Dost or
and wife «-e splendid people, and I al

My next stop was Chicago, where
I spent the week-end at4760 Champlain,
at the beaatifal stone front mansion
ef Mr. and Mrs. James Thomas, the
oldest and the wealthiest residents
of the Southside, wnere the best classes

heir beautiful home, they own other
properties, and valuable holdings. Mrs.
Burckhardt and Mrs. America Thomas
and myself have been close friends
for many years, and of course I felt
very much at home. Mr. Thomas is
better known by his friends as “Jim"
in plain, nobler traits of manhood.

the fallowing day after my arrival
which happened lust a little ways from
Jackson. Just a day or two before I
reached jackssn. they had searched
many homes looking for a Negro who
waa supposed to have inputted a white
woman over the phone.
I was In one of the home they had
searched. It was the general sentiment
in Jackson that this womans husband
had over heard a phone conversation
she was having with a lover, and when
called in question, she said some Ne
gro had called her over the phone and
These happenings had no bearing
upon our convention, it was one of the
best that we havi had for ye>ars, while
all of our convention are of a high
type which Is characteristic of the or
ganization. but this one was better re
presented than usual- We had a large
delegation from Los Angeles, Cleve
land, Indianapolis, Detroit, Washington
St. Lewis, Kansas City, Newport, Chic
ago, and a largo number of delegates
thoaghout the Southern states.
The Bishop C. P. Gohnes, who is the
father of the organization, Bishop
Cronic, Veter, Morrison, Butler, and
Bishop Moody of Kentucky wasn't pre
sent. Our regular attendenee r»n from
three to four thousand daily. Among
this large crewd, there was sprinkled
some of the finest white citizens of the
south, who there, like here, are willing
to encourage a worthwhile proposition
Ve alse have devout southern peo
ple whe are members of our erganiza
tion. Bishop C. P. Vohnes, our Sen
ior Bishop was at himself, and gave
out much rich spiritual food, that I
am sure enrichened many lives.
His annual address a diamond
mine in wealth an encouragement the
younger element in the ministry to
push on in this splendid work of the
master. The general work of the
convention came under the presidingship
of Bishop h. I. Conic-, whe is a splendid
ckistjan gentleman. During the en
tire conventoin I never heard a harsh
word spoken by a Bishop or delegate.

the Psalm of David meant in he 133
divieien of Psalm, hen he e^id, "Behold,
ho good and pleasant it is for Bret hem
-- , . a
I to dwell together in peace."
It might also wound funny for me *t»
say to you, that during my weeks stay
in Jackson. I only saw four men smok
ing on the convention! grounds, and
they were mechanics, who came to work
on etrs, and they threw a w'y their
cigarettes in n very short time after
they c«)m upon the grounds. From
this, you c«n see whm s high respect
even the sinness have for stored place
of worship. We as »n jrganimtion
would eonsid«r it a d.sgmoe saying no
thing about it tieing irreligious to see
one of #ur ministers using tobacco in
llom«n 7-1-2 says, “Having therefore
these promises dearly beloved, let us
cleans© ourselves from all the filthiness
of the flesh perfecting hoiines in the
fear of God. Our convention stresses
a clean life, and holy living on the
part of her subjects. This trip mark
ed an epoch in the history of my life,
(hat shall long be remembered by .vlr
of the fact that my friends both Saints
and sinners united their forces toget
her and mado up a treasure that mad*
it possible for me »o make this trip
I shall aways feel grateful pi my
heart to both ®inl and sinner, and
shall continue to pray lo the God of
all the universe to make me worthy
of this kindnee shown me

PltOBERBS AND PARABLES
(“Birds of A feather")
By K. A. Mann
(For the Literary Service Bureau)
“Birds of ft feather" means birds or
the same kind. Ever see geese and
turkeys mixing? EVer see ducks and
cranes flying together? Then, seeing a
flock of birds associating, you conclude
all are *f the same kind.
This warns against evil associates.
A good person may be misjudged be
cause he is found with evil-doer®. But
such judgment would be indeed reason
able. One might accidently and un
knowingly get into bad company, but if
he makes it a habit to associate with
them, then undoubtly he is like them.
So one needs to be careful of the com
pany he keeps.

Leoking back. I remember how young
folk of my class talked and dreamed
of owning a home. Well, things have
changed, since I was young.

The news dfej jatehes of a few lays
ago gave some discouraging informa
..tion in regard to crime. One dis
patch wafs beaded, "Convicted, Sen
tence Paroled." The lawbreaker, a
man of twenty-two years, was charg
ed with highway robbery. He was al
loyed to plead guilty of grand tau-eeny.
The Judge gave him a sentence of 5
years in the state prison, then ina- f
meditely paroled him and set him free.
In the other ease, the headlines read
"Sixteenth Time In Court.” It told
the story of a man who had been ar
rested sixteen times within four years.
In this case was given a fine of 22
When courts are thus lenient with
those who commit crime these aery
courts and their judges encourage
crime. Those men will doubtless com
mit other crimes, and others whc
have criminal tendencies will lose their
fear of coarts and of penal lnstltu
One of the most surprising features Is
that these lenient -courts hfive long
been noted for law-enforcement. It Is
signifies*, tjoo, that whisky featured
atae in these ease*; of law-breaking.
