CHARLES TOWN GAS 226 Support of EdUcation In those days there were no col- leges, no schools in our sense of the word. Most of what we now teach in school was still unknown; we would call that civilization "barbaric" if it existed today. Nevertheless, even booktess people need education. King Jehoshaphat saw to it that the schools went to the people. He routed the priests, Levites and princes out of the cap- ital city where most of them seem to have gone, and sent them around the country to teach the people where they lived. We can observe similar movements today in the village schools of India or the folk- schools of Denmark. Many Amer- icans seem to think you can't have real education without big expen- sive plants (including gymnasiums bigger than anything else); but wh~re countries are small and poor, as Jehoshaphat's was by our standards, you have to do some- thing simpler. Support of the Courts King Jehoshaphat knew that even an educated and well-church- ed nation needs good courts. His strong charge to the judges he appointed i~ still as good as new. (Incidentally, we note that he saw to it that every town had a court. If courts are not available, if they are too far and too few, you get the "west-of-the-Pecos" stuff, which is really not law at. all.) The king advised the judges to make their decisions in the fear of God, not of men. Courts which make only such decisions as they know will be popular are basically unfair. A court must not ask: Will everybody like this? but is this fair and just in the sight of God ? Furthermore, the king warned those judges against partiality, or taking bribes. "Peddlers of influ- ence" were a nuisance in those days as well as these. A court or a judge that can be bought, a lawyer who thinks only of his fee and his fame, are obstructions to justice. Some one has said that the whole pur- pose of the law is to~ protect the weak from the strong. And when courts are too weak to do that, the whole country slides into weak- ness and decay. Support of the Church Little if anything is said about organized religion in Jehoshaphat's time. We may assume that the temple worship was going on, and we know the king suppressed many of the local shrines or "high places" as they were called. The trouble wiech those "high places" was that they tende@ to get off the track and actually become cen- ters of idol-worship, sometimes of a repulsive sort. But the significant thing about this king's attitude to religion was that he expected it to push out into the other institutions of society. When his army was in a tight place, he prayed, "We do not know what to do, but our eyes art upon Thee.~ He reminded his judges that Cod was their Judge. He sent both priests and Levttes out to teacl~ It take~ not only a strong army, strong educational institutions and strong court~ to make a strong nation; a strong re- ligion is needed as the base of St all. But th~ strength of a nation's faith is not shown in its farJflung organizatiofls nor in the number atten.cling public worship. The test of a nation's professed religion was then and is now: Does it work out into the country's whole life?

ALL FOR THE CHURCH There was a fellow at the plant who was always asking me to go with him to church. In a way this picture portrays his zeal. For there was some- thing boyishly enthusiastic about his eagerness; something joy- ously genuine in his confidence. And his fervor reminded one of the disciples of old who became "fishers of men." Well, he brought my family to church. Not because he was a salesman or a saint. Simply because he encouraged us to seek the convictions he was so eager to share. Betty and I, and little Ricky, really owe our cherished faith to the moment that fellow at the plant said, "I'LL STOP BY YOUR PLACE ON SUNDAY MORNING." Now, we too, find happiness in bringing our friends and neigh- bors to church. The Cburcll is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual 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: (I) For his own sake. (2) For bls children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and ~ation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
