lalN~ ~dofl~ Bible Material: Ecclesiastes 1:12; 12; II Timothy 4:6-8. Devotional Reading : l Tlmothy 6:11-16. Two Views of Life Lesson for June 11, 1961 THERE is something we all dread, and yet we all want: Old Age. That is to say, the nor- mal person wants to live a long time, and you certainly can't live a great many years without groW- ing old. BUt" on the other hand, when we see some old people, we say to ourselves, "I'd hate to be like that.'' Now our study for this week is P.bout old age, as Seen by two different old men, the author of Ecclesiastes, Dr. Feremazk ancl Saint Paul. We said las{ week that Ecelesi. astes does not have the last word in the Bible, and this is true of his views on old age as it is of other matters, Whatrhe said about old age is true, yet Saint Paul holds a higher truth. LOt'S Nays No Illusions.. Both these men agree on an important point: If you hope to have a happy or peaceful old age, you'd better be preparing for it. Ecclesiastes says this plainly; Paul (as we shall see) says it not in words but by his example. Every reader of this page has an old person who is going to be de- pendent on him or her; namely, himself, or herself. Other people may have to take care of you, you may be dependent on them fob- food and shelter. Or you may be financially independent in your old age. Either way, though, the im- portant part of being old is how you feel on the inside. For this, you and only you are responsible. If you turn out to be a gloomy, morose, complaining old nuisance, that's the fault of you yourself, now, not some time later. If you are cheerful with bright slmny thoughts, that also will be sor~e- thing you are arranging for, no-.v. "Remember NOW thy creator, in the days of thy youth," he says.

In of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Reese. Howard A. Swart of charleston, !Rainey, Katy Wilt, Vicky Houser, modern simple language: Get the habit of thinking about GOD, now, while you can still form a good habit. Don't put off thinking seri- ously and happily about God till you are old. If you do, God will seem a stranger. Think about God while you are young, remember you owe your very life to him, he is your Creator. If Ecclesiastes cannot say that God loves you, or has redeemed you, he still be- lleves In God, and knows that in old age the happiest thoughts, sometimes the only happy thoughts possible, are those we can have of God. An Old Man's Thoughts Now listen to "Paul the Aged," ---Old Man Paul as people would say today. At the time he wrote 2 Timothy, he was not only old, he was expecting death to some soon. He was not well, and he was in jail. Isn't it bad enough to be old, without having all those troubles besides? But Paul does not com- plain. DurIng most of thi* letter he says nothing about b~eing old. He is thinking of other people, o future generations even rather than of himself. When he does come to speak of himself, his thought runs backward as an old man's thoughts do; but not in bit- terneSs, not even in the quiet mel- ancholy of old Ecclesiastes. He thinks of life as a fight to the fin- ish, a race, a test. It's nearly all in the past now; but he rejoices in his memories. He fought the fight, he won the race, he stood the test. You see Paul had been preparIng for old age In'bn~ of the best ways possible: namely, he had not spent any time think- ing about it, he had not deliberate- ly prepared for it at all. He had simply lived out every minute to the full, putting everything he had into the race, the fight, the test. By the time he reached old age. he had long had the habit of faith, of hope and of love. He did not need to learn how to be unselfish in old age. He was ah'eady tha way. Old age was good beca~:' life had been good. We may be, sure that when the last hour came to him, "Heaven, with love abrim, did not seem strange, to him."

Their col- lection _consisted of two blues and four yellow ribbons. Jasper, the burro owned and ridden by Mr. H. O. Bush was a source of hilarity. Jasper may have been startled by the rider's outfit or by the crowd but most feel that he missed his favorite stomping ground.

ALL FOR TH,E CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of kharocter ond ~ood citizenship. It is a storehouse of spirltusl values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor dvilizatioa can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services reguhrly and support the Church. They are: (l) For hh own sake. (2) For his children's sake. f3) For the sake of his communi~' and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.

Ever since we were enough to reason, we have been seeing the world through dark It's just as Paul said: "Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face." We spend our years wondering why things happen as they why hatred flourishes and love withers.., why sorrow seems ble and joy so rare. Apparently, we were not meant to understand not here ! Some truths God has revealed to us; these our Churches teach. truths God will not reveal until another day; to prepare us for that our Churches strive.
