!ii Bible Material: Acts 18:11-40. ~evotlonal JgeadlnK: Romans 10:1-13. Business Woman Lesson for August 27, 1961 THE WOMAN known to history only as "Lydia" is unique among, the .women of the Bible. We hear nothing at all about her family. She was a business woman, engaged in selling the purple dye which was so fashion- able in ancient times. She was presumably sue- cegsful; we can guess this because the kind of thing she sold suggests customers in the upper brackets; but also because tion on the tombstone: S.E.E. Mount Holyoke Graduate 1845. The lady whose body was laid there was more proud of being a college graduate in 1845 than she was of her own name. You see it has not been long since even in this "Christian" country a woman braved a good deal of ridicule and opposition when she branched out for herself. People should have read Lydia's story in Acts, The Wealth and Power of Women It is a commonplace observa- tion, even if somewhat exagger. ated, that women are the wealthy sex. Besides all the money they control in their own right, they are the great spenders---and this is not intended in a mean way. A visit to the super-market or the department store will show who spends the family money. The men must believe that their women have good judgment, otherwise they would lock up the family check-book. Women are probably far more powerful, as a sex, than men. If we ever really have peace, it will not be until women stand up and demand it. If our churches ever really shoul. d~r the responsibility for evange- lizing the world, it will not be until the women really put their energies into rrdssionary work. she owned a home A Long Line Dr. Foreman of her own, no economy fiat but a house big There are some aspects of life enottgh to entertain quRe a party in which most women outshine of missionaries. Even before shemost men, and one of these is personalizing good works. A became a Christian she was a man will write you a check for praying woman, and a leader of other women. Presumably she your orphanage; but a woman had brains and charm, at, admir-wants to see the orphans. A man able woman. The Freedom of Women What makes Lydia a stand-out is notthat she became a Chris- tian; the New Testament abounds in stories of people who became Christians. Nor yet that she was a woman, for many women were be- lievers, from the very beginning. She stands out because of her in. dependence of life. Women in Palestine always "belonged" to some one, as was true in most ancient cultures. But around the Aegean Sea women had more freedom. No one thought Lydia peculiar for her independent way of life. It may seem strange that it i,took so long for the world to dis- !~pver what Lydia knew very we~l; !~hat it is no disgrace for a womhn branch out for herself in a !man's world, This writer is per- l~nally acquainted with the first i~oman ever to graduate from a l--~chool of medicine in a certain state. In a small country church- yard in North Carolina there is a grave with the strange inscrip- will recommend you to a good hotel, but a woman will invite you to her home. That was Lydia: she did not say to her distinguished visitor: Sir, I wish you and your companions a pleasant stay in Philippi. She did indeed wish that; but she did better, she went to some trouble to see that they were well treated, she invited the whole party to her own home. Lydia was among the first in a long line of women who have given active personal encouragement to the church and its leaders. When you think of the hostesses, counsellors, administrators, persuaders, teach. era and benefactors financially and otherwise, in the church today, who are women, we may well wonder what the church would have been, had women been shut out!

Those stirrlng words of the Twenty.Thlrd Psalm: He maketh me to fie down In green pastures... He leadeth me beside the still waters...

Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor cix~ilizatioa can sur- vive. There are four sourrd reasons why every person ~hould attend services regulady and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake (2) For his children's sake. (]) 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 your Bible daily. Day Book Chapter Verses Sunday Psalms 2~ 1-6 Monday Acts a 30-38 Tuesday Genesis 9 8-17 Wednesday I Peter 5 4-11 Thursday Deuteronomy~ 6-8 Friday Isaiah 25 1-4 Saturday Romans 14 16-19. The psalmist must have known the turmoil of life, even though he lived three thousand years ago. At least he had experienced the peace which comes upon a man when he escapcs the bustling world and rests in the quiet stillness of nature's scene. And he caught its spiritual meaning! A man's soul, like his body, needs to be restored. Just as sleep and recreation rebuild our physical strength, prayer and worship re-vitalize our spiritual being. Thoughtfully, our forefafllers taught us to spend part o[ each day in spiritual pursuits. Wisdy, they set aside one day of the week forworship. The Church provides oppprtunity for Sunday worship, and guidance in every-day devotion to G6d.
