One sin of ~Martin~burg spen, t it)he ,past which has been singled out for this doubtful honor has been called "the lust for power." It is not wrong to desire power; otherwise Jesus would have se- verely condemn- ed the two dis- ciples who want- ed to sit on thrones at his right and left. It is not wrong to wish to influence other persons, Dr. Foremam otherwise it would be a sin to run for president of anything. Never- theless, desire for power can be so exaggerated that it becomes a pad- siGn, a soul-destroying passion. Law and the Lost for Power There is a first-class example of how the lust for power can run away with a man, an example of how other sins are spawned by this one, in the Bible story bf King Ahab and the private citizen named Naboth. Nearly all readers of the Bible know this story, and those who do not know it should look it up (see the references given here), for it is a dramatic story. King Ahab was of course one of the wealthiest men in the kingdom. He "had all he needed and more besides. But he wanted the vineyard of the small farmer Naboth. He wanted it so much that he was willing to break the law of the land, he was willing to go even as far as mur- der, to get what he wanted. Ahab could never have got that vineyard by legal means. If Naboth did not want to sell, there was no law to make him. More than that, according to the law of those times, Naboth was required to hold on to his property, Ancient Hebrew law saw to it that every family was provided with land. and must not get rid of their landed prop- erty, large or small. Ahab was at first "stumped" by this fact. But spurred by his wife Jezebel, a sort of Lady Macbeth, Ahab rode right through the law, using perjury and murder before he was through, all to get that one vineyard. Property for use or for Power? History is filled with examples of men who have been so mad for power that like Ahab they paid no attention to laws that would have held them back from what they wanted. We have seen this in our time in Hitler abroad, and in some men in high places in our own country. But there is another thing about the lust for power. Why is it that many persons seem unable to stop acquiring property? Long after they can no longer use it, long after they have enough, they keep on go- ing, they never feel up to the game, they want more and more. The thing becomes almost a disease. One wise thinker of our times believes that this sort of thing, the sort of thing Ahab did, is a case of wanting security overmuch. A man wants to feel safe, so he piles up wealth and property around him like walls to shut out misfortune. He does not care whom he hurts, just so he bimself is safe. Another thinker sees in all this, evidence to support the proposition that while property for use is a good thing, property for power alone is dan- gerous to society and that want- ing to have what you cannot use is a sin. My Rights and my Reach One thing is certain: the prophet Elijah, being God's man and not the king's, saw no good in what Ahab had done. There was nothing in being a king which gave a man the right to disregard other people, nothing in being a king that gave a man the right to smash the laws of God. Almb must have thought, "My rights go as far as I can reach."

Maybe it's because he seems so out of proportion. If he somehow were able to flap those ears he might fly away. Perhaps there is a little fellow in your home who is "all ears" in an- other sense.., a youngster who takes in everything that's said, includ- ing some things he isn't meant to hear. Most children are eager to listen . . . hungry to learn. That is why the early years are so important in the molding of a child's character. The things he hears, whether right or wrong, make a deep impression on his mind. They are soon reflected in his actions and words. Wise parents take advantage of the Church's program of religious education in implanting those early impressions. They know there is , no surer builder of character than religious faith. NOW... while your child is eager to hear and to learn, bring him to church.., and support the Church in its great undertaking. !iiii ii!i!ii a THE CHURCH FOR ALL . .:' ALL FOR THE CHURCH ii!!ii The Church is the greatest factor on earth for ;:iili the building of character and good citizenshiP" i!ili! It is a storehouse o~,p~r~tual values, withou,. i! 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: (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 h,s moral and material support.
