OBSERVE IT BY ATTENDING THE CHURCH OF YOUR CHOICE! i/ ii;t Bible Material: 3ohn 13. ]Devotional Reading: I John 2:7-11. Now Oommandment Lesson for March 5, 1961 MANY MEN manage to think themselves much better than they are, because they have only the Ten Commandments for a standard. And they understand that famed code only in a strict literal fashion--which as Jesus showed us, is no way to take the Ten Command- monte. How long is it since you made a graven !range ? Which of the women read- ing this column ever coveted a neighbor's wife ? Robinson Crusoe and Dan'l Boone, in their respec- Dr. Foreman tire wilderness, had no trouble about coveting what was their neighbor's-they had no neighbors. The Eleventh Oommandment Jesus added another Command- ment, you know, which in an im- portant way is not like the rest of those laws. It is not just another law, additional to the Ten Com- mandments. It is not a P.S. tacked on. You might bette2 say that the Eleventh Commandr~ent had been in God's mind always. The eleventh interprets the others, t~ summar- izes th~ others. Jesus himself said of lave of Go,.i and mun, that on tlmse t~'o commandments "hang all U:e law and the Prophets." ~!c~.~u:'!ng ourselves against tlds ~aw. we do not stack up so well. This ,~ particularly true when we he~r Jesus saying to the group m ~he Upper Room: "---that you love o:xe another---even as I have loved you." For we kncv~ what that "as ] have loved yo,' means. Jesu~ die~ for those men, and for u~. Love, ~crifiee, even to the gate of death ---that is the me~sure of his love; hoe; oftcn of ours 7 ; ",t D; s Love Moan? ;< 'I vain said, and is often .!~:, :. !, that the parts of the Bible ~',t~'t ~m~x~tand never bother- ed him. It was the parts he did u, derstand that disturbed him. Me:. of us, and this includes people who are not Christians at all, would like very much to live in a world dom. inated by love. We understand the meaning of love, at a distance That is to say, we all want to be loved. We want somebody who wil; care about us. We want some one to look out for our interests, we want a "fan," somebody that,,be- lieves in us, somebody who will gc out of his way to help us. When it comes to the pinch, right down in the bottom of our selfish hearts each of us hopes that if there are only four life preservers for five shipwrecked people, the other four will all insist that whoever drowns, it must not be :Me. If we are driving along a road and suddenly a colli- sion looms, don't we hope the other man will obligingly drive into the ditch or wrap himself around a tree, rather than run into US ? Yes, "we know what love means," we want other persons to have it-- for us. It is only when it is de- manded of us that we grow hazy and hesitant. Love, we say to our- selves.., well, you know what a vague sort of word that is, hard to pin down . . . After all, doesn't it mean wishing people well ? Is It Possible? No, my friend, it won't do. You show you understand the meaning of love when it is something you want showered on you. It is only when you are asked to sprinkle a little bit of it on others that you pretend you don't understand, and offer all these feeble substitutes. You show something else, too: how difficult it is to have genuine love. (Some observers of human nature would say at this point: "Difficult ? -- Impossible !" You complain a good deal because the kind of love you would like to have, is so scarce. It is scarce because there are too many people like yourself--and indeed all of us are more or less alike in this. In fact, it is so difficult that many thinkers throw up their hands, so to speak, they give up the problem. If what is needed is love, and if the required quality of love is so hard to find (for remember all the time it is love at Christ's level and on his standard that is in question) shouldn't we just not aim so high? That would be like saying to an airplane: Because you cannot reac~ the moon, you shall not leave the ground! Even the "impossible" ideal draws us closer to God.

There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (I) 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 itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.
