Devotional Reading: 1 John 2:12-17 Jerry Kramer, former football star of the Green Bay Packers, tells of an occasion on which Vince Lombardi, who coached the Packers at the time, an- nounced to the team: "There are three things that are important to every man in this room: his religion, his family, and the Green Bay Packers." Kramer goes on to com- ment: "Vince means what he says, but some- times I think he gets the order Rev. Althouse confused" (-INSTANT REPLAY by Jerry Kramer, New American Library, 1948). A sense of values That is a common failing with many of us. We know the im- portant things in life, but we get the order confused. It Is the put- ting of second things first and letting first things take some- thing less than first place that make us victims of secularization. This was also Esau's problem. His sense of values was distorted. As the first-born son the birth- right was his. It entailed certain rights and privileges not available to the other children. It included a double portion of the inheri- tance and made Esau both head of the family (next to Isaac) and heir to the covenant of Abraham and Isaac. It could be taken away or sold, although few men would have been willing to give up so precious a possession. Esau, however, was a man of appetites. If he was hungry, he wanted food NOW and it would he at that moment the most im- portant thing in his life. The satisfaction of the momentary need seemed to rule him com- pletely. He would give up any- thing to satisfy it. The sight and smell of savoury food made him forget or ignore his valuable possession. Thus he sold his birthright for "a mess of pot- ~ge." He gave up a priceless gift for sqmething of fleeting value. Engrossed with "things" So it is With many of us today. We become so engrossed with things of lesser value and allow to slip from us the values that are greatest of all. We are often driven by hungers and appetites that are allowed free rein over us. We become obsessed with bright, shiny things that glitter and sparkle and distract us. On April 14, 1912, fifteen hun- dred people were drowned when the supposedly unsinkable Ti. tani struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and went to the bottom. Yet, the tragedy need not have taken place. Fiye times in two hours the ship" had re- ceived danger signals concerning icebergs and ignored them. The last attempt was made by the radio operator of a nearby vessel, the Californian. The reply from the radio shack of the Tltanie was: "Shut up, I am busy; I am working the Cape Race." Within a few short minutes after that message the Titanic collided with the iceberg and four hours later fifteen hundred people were drowned. What had happened was that the radio operator in the Titanic was too occupied with the highly profitable business of sending and receiving telegrams to wor- ry about iceberg warnings. The people on board the luxury liner were interested in the progress of the Cape Sailing Regatta, not ice- bergs. So, because they were too busy with the wrong thing, there was a needless loss of life. "Working a race" So it may seem to the Esau's of today that there are tiresome warnings about this or that, in- terfering with our pleasures. To these warnings we too want to reply, "Shut up, I am busy; I am working a race." And what a race it is that we are working! Perhaps we all need to heed the lines of that old spiritual: Slow me down, Lord, l'se gain' too fast; I can't see my brother when he's walkin' past; I miss a lot of good things day by day, I don't know a blessing when it acmes my way. That's what we need: to be able to recognize the real blessing.* from the "pottage" when the3 come our way. (ik~sed on outlines copyrighted by the Dlvi~on of Christian Educahon, Natlona!

These name .s assure us of quality. We, too, are known by our names. Mention of John Smith immediately inspires a positive or negative reaction, depending upon the man's reputation. A good nam ee is indeed our most priceless, yet most perishable, posses- sion. Day in and day out, our thoughts, words and actions must be on the side of good- ness, for it is today which determines tomorrow's past -- far good or for bad. If we could only perform each act and utter each word as if they were our last, those by which we would be re- membered, then how great would be the significance of our names!
