Devotional Reading: John 6:47-5~ Life's Hunger Lesson for February 5, 1961 IF CHRIST could turn stones into bread, if he could somehow start with a boy's lunch and build it into a meal for five thousand men with their wives and children, why did he not keep on doing it? No doubt he could have turned stones into breed; but he never tried to do it. Nobody who was out there in the wil- derness the day Jesus fed the five thousand had the least doubt that Jesus' powers were unlimited. No wonder that Dr. Foreman (as John tells us) they tried tG make him king by force . . . But Jesus steadily refused to repeat the miracle. Jesus loved people, but he was not one to do every- thing he was asked to do. He was not even going to do all the kind things he was asked to do. For surely it would have been a kind- ness to make life easier for the poverty?stricken people of Gali- lee ? SUrely there must have been really hungry people there. You know there were, because we hear of no one crying for cake, or bread with butter {they would have said, alive oil) on it. Just bread, again, please, again! But there was no en- core. Was Jesus heartless? Had his power failed him ? Hunger For Bread Now hunger for bread is one of the elemental things in life. Quite civilized people, once they become r~lly hungry, act like savages, act like wild dogs. One would think Jesu~ would not have rebuked the people for 'wanting what human beings, living creatures, cannot help wanting. We were not there, so we cannot interview any one and find out for certain just why Jesus spoke as he did; but from various hints, we can guess. For one thing, he knew that all the people in Galilee who were sharers in the great "miracle of the loaves By Mrs. Julia Whipp Viands Mr. and Mrs. Garland Henry spent the weekend in Baltimore, Mrd. with their son-in-law and daughter Mr. and Mrs. John Ham pton and son Terry.

Robert, and and fishes" had manag~d somehow to keep alive an~l going, all their years up to that day. Some of them were lazier than average, of course, but even a lazy man, if hungry enough, will work. So Jesus knew that what they wanted him to do was not simply to feed them. The Starved $0ul Jesus, moreover, took this op portunity to impress an idea on the people of Capernaum, an idea which was true but which they were not quite able to swallow. Not only are endless free meals sure to make a man worthless; but even bought-and-paid-for, meals, well balanced diets, can be a drag on the spirit. Life has other hungers. Physical hungers are loud and crude. But there are other hungers whose voice is quiet, hungers dormant, in some live" never making themselves felt at all. These are the higher hungers, if we may call them so, these are the unmet appetites of mind and spirit. W~en we refer to a man or woman as having lived a "full life" we do not mean that steak was served them for dinner every night. There are appetites that can be cultivated, but if they are not, they may die away. The hunger of the mind for understanding, for sympathy, for peace; the hunger of the soul for ~od. These can actually be smothered by an abun- dance of bread. The Broad of God Jesus called himself the bread of life, the bread of God. If he could use such a figure of speech, we may make bold to say that de- siring the Bread of Life is an ac- quired taste. Just as an apprecia- tion of beauty, and of the higher forms of love, are acquired tastes for most people, so the taste for the Bread of God has to be awakened. Few persons are born with it. Countless men and women live not only without Christ but not want Ins him at all, not feeling lost (as they are) without him. They do not know what they are missing. What will awaken them ? An Old Test- ament poet had it--"O taste and gee that the Lord is goodW If those who know Christ and love him will sh~re him, many who now live starved lives without realizing it, will waken to know that their true inner hunger, the hunger of the soul, can be satisfied only by him.

ALL F:OR THE. CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the Euilding of character and:good citizenship. It is a storehouse of sp'iritusl values. Without a strong Church. neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: fl) For his own sake. (2)For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itsdf, which needs his morn| and material ~pport.
