It means some- thing stronger than simply "love;" it expresses the enduring, persist- ent, patient and steadfast quality of C-od's love to man. Love Among the Rui People ask sometimes, What does the Bible tell us about God that other religions do nof~ ? Are not all religions worshipping the same GOd by different names ? Of course the one greatest truth about God, which we find in the Bible and no- where else, is that he is the God and Father of Jesus Christ. But long before Jesus was born, the Hebrews knew that GOd is a God of steadfast love. Other religions did not know this. That God is to be honored, worshipped, obeyed and feared, yes all religions knew that. But only the Hebrews knew the God who is Love. It may be a surprise, but it is very like the whole Bible, that we should run across the same little word ("chesed" in Hebrew), in a very unpromising place, the book of I_~mentations. This little "book" (8 pages long) lives up to its name; it is the most mournful book in the Bible. Well it may be; for it was written about the dreadful time after the downfall of Jerusalem, in the cruel hardships of defeat. Yet even here the "steadfast love" of God is felt and praised. Even among the ruins of a once fair city, the inspired poet does not give up his faith in the God of love. New Every Morning There is a wonderful thing about the love of God, which all those who know the true God realize, even when they do not understand it. That is, his love never grows stale. It is never, so to speak, a habit, it is always a surprise. Just at the moment of deepest discour- agement, just at the very brink of fatal temptation, the inner Voice speaks, and joy and strength re- turn again. God's love is the most surprising thing in the world. It is, ~s this poet of the Lamentations said, new every morning. We do not deserve it, we may give up counting on it--but there it is. All God's saints, that is, those who have felt most deeply this divinely persistent and pervasive love, have discovered at some time or other, usually at Some crisis, some time of trouble or of grief, that it is not on the sunniest days that God is most likely, to make h~If know~l. Ho H,avenly 6ranCfa#hgr The writer of Lamentations leaves with us a needed warning. It is easy to get a little too enthus- iastic about the love of God. Many persons have felt so sure of it-- and sure of God--that they felt now they had a license, so to speak, to do whatever they like. They think of God's love as something so sure and certain, so gtmranteed, that nothing they do makes any difference to God. H~ is no longer a heavenly Father, in their sight, he becomes a beavenly grand- father. He is up there always ready with something specially nice for his favorite little ones. But the poet of the Lamentations knew better than 'that. In the downfall of his beloved city he sees the hand of God, a God who had endured the careleaness, disobedience and pride of his people till (to use Isaiah'r word) he was tired of it. A father or mother, ff they really love a child, will discipline the child wbe~ he needs it. A father who would never punish his son, no matter what, does not actually love him. It is because of God's love, not in spite of it, that he punishes us. (]~ased on outlln~J eopyHghted by the Divielon of Christian Edueatlor lattonal Council of the Churches o. Christ in the U. S. A.

ALL /:OR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for thc 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 shou]d atlend services regu]arly and support the Church. They arc: (!) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For Ihe sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and rsd your Bible daily. Day Book Chapter Verses Sunday John 12 .35-36 Monday Psalms 84 1-6 Tuesday Job 5 8-17 Wednesday Isaiah 9 1-6 Thursday Jeremiah 13 15-17 Friday Lamentations 3 22-26 Saturday John 14 6-13 Have you ever been deep in a woodland, where it is so dark that you think light can never enter? Then suddenly a shaft of sunlight strikes through the trees, and you find yourself standing in unexpected beauty. Life can be like that, too. At the darkest moment, suddenly there can be light--if you have the power to see it. But that's an important "if." So many of us fumble through the days and years when the greatest candle of all, the Church, stands ready to light our path. If you have been depriving yourself of the guiding strength of the Church, start now attending its services. It will help you find your way both in sunlight and in shadow, ~,~Y:~llht JgsZ K,i~fe Affv. $~vice.
