Making Others Suffer
By R. A. ADAMS
(For the Literary Service Bureau)
Sometimes we hear the petulant
statement “It’s nobody’s business
what I do to myselF’, and “He harms
nobody but himself.” But such is im
A wife suffers when her husband’s
wrong doings bring their inevitable
penalties. The husband of a derelict
cannot escape, when she sins and suf
fers. Sorrow, grief shame, humilia
tion, come to parents when their chil- J
dren are wayward and bring trouble
upon themselves. And let it be re
membered also, that many a child
suffers because of mistakes and sins
Yes, it is a fact, an inescapable
fact, that “Suffering follows sin,”
and it is true, undeniably true, that
the suffering is never confined to
the individual who is guilty of trans
gressions. Because of their relation
to such derelicts, many are made to
suffer innocently. These are things
to which most serious consideration
^hould be given, especially at times
l^hen there is inclination to go wrong.
