C.R. Loyalty This was true of the famou~ Old Testament hero named Samuel. He was what in football language is called a triple-threat man. He was a priest, prophet, Judge, military advisor; and tradition even ~ays he was a writer, though of course he did not live long enough to have written the books that bear his name in the Old Testament. (They do not claim to have been written by him.) Before his time there had been no kings, and indeed not very much unity among the tribes of Israel. Under his leadership the tribes were better united, and it would not be much exaggeration to say that Samuel "licked the tribes into shape"---the shape of a kingdom which he turned over to the first king-by-title, Saul. It is true that King Saul did not pay attention to Samuel's wisdom; but all the same, after the old prophet was dead, Saul thought so much of his advice that he actually tried to conjure him out of his grave just to hear him again. W'hat was the secret of Samuel's power over Israel ? l~rst of all it was a contagious loyalty to the one true God. It was a time when most men worshipped many gods. Even the Isrgelites did this. Samu'el ran the risk of bein~ lobkeff/~t aS a cranI< or a fanatic, but such was his known loyalty to God thnt when he challenged Israel to throw away their idols, they did. There must have been som~hing in his life that made even those primitive men sure that one-plus-God means greatness. Prayer Another marked feature of Samuel's life was his prayers. We have on record the story of his very first prayer. It was not a begging request, not a "Gimme" prayer at all. It was "Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth." Even as a boy he would rather hear what God has to say than to pour out words be- fore God. How seldom it is that people in praying give God any chance to speak' The Lord seIdom has much to say. to a n~an who in- sists on talking every minute. Another feature of Samuel's prayer life was that he prayed for others, even when those others had turned their backs on him. Samuel did his best to persuade the Israe- lites not to have a king. He knew that "power corrupts" and he pre- dicted accurately the injustice and tyranny which their future kings would show. But they wanted a king all the eame; yet in taking leave of them Samuel was not bitter. "Far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to. pray for you," he said. Wisdom Samuel was an example of what we nowadays call a circuit Judge. He held court in three cities, in- cluding his home town. (This alone is remarkable.) He was not (on the one hand) the kind of religious per- son who retires to a cell and there spends his life in prayer. He was a of affairs, trusted by high and low. He was not (on the other hand) the kind of religious person who keeps his religioa with his hym~book--in church, where he takes it out and gets loud and happy over it once ~ week--only once. Samuel on the contrary was a man w'noae religious faith Was the fo~mdatlon of his wimtorm IRe- Hgion did not lift him "out of this world;~ it gave him i~sight into the problems of this world. Hi~ one-plus-God llfe wa~ not for him- self alone; God in life helped him to be a help to others, perhaps one strong reason why there are not more per~on~ who deserve that "One-plus-God" description, is that too many of u~ want to have C_,od .by the hand to ~erve o~v~el~ rather than other~ (B~4 n eu~nea eo~rdgl~1 by the Division of Christian Edueatlon, National Counell ~f ~ Chureh~ of Christ ia .the U. 8.

It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church. neither democracy fior civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (1) 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 },our Bible daily.

I used to wonder what he saw---what Vision against sun ! And once I blurted the tremendous question: "Daddy, can y0O God ?" He kept on gazing off into space, but a smile crossed hi! "No, son, a man doesn't see God i He fee!s God. And rhea out his window and sees the world in a different light." I grew up to discover what he meant. His Bible--his convictions have become mine.
