It is a storehouse otspiritual 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 his children's sake. (3) 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. Perhaps you see no significance to the hourglass superimposed on the Bible. But to the believer, it means that all of life is sustained by God's promises. Every day, every hour, He gives strength and help to His followers. The light of His Word shines steadily through the pass- ing of time. The more you read, the deeper will be your understanding, the greater will be your joy. By entering wholeheartedly into the work of the Church, by giving it your support, you increase the value of your Day Book Chapter Vers~ own life, and help others to see the light" chining through each day's Sunday Psalms 34 1-4 Monday" John 14 1-3 pYnp~'i~no~ Tuesday Habakkuk 3 "18-19 '---z-" ........

Believe it not, there are people States who think that one terested in peace is a That is not only bad logic, but plays into the hands of the communists. Their constant word for us is "war - mongers," a people who want war and will do anything to start one. This is not true of us as a nation, and yet people who turn against the notion of peace are certainly giv- Dr. Foreman ing ammunition to anybody likes to call tm a ties. "With a Whirlwind" The great prophets of the Testament did not admire They looked on it as brought on by sin. One from Zechariah is a sample 8-12). God had an ideal for people, a life of justice, and mercy. But the Israelite would not hear, and so God tered them with a whirlwind. As we know from the Old Testa" ment histories, this whirlwind instrument of God's punishment on a nation that not obey--this was nothing other than the wards which ended tl~* Hebrew kingdoms. And the brews, as the stories chiefly themselves to getting into those wars. Most the recorded history of the two kingdoms of Judah and Israel i$ history of wars, long or few of them did the Hebrews good, and in the end it was which, like a tornado, left homes in ruins and blew them straw across the face of the Ideal City But the storm of war was ~0t the last word of God to Israel "~ prophet Zechariah, preaching in time when Jerusalem was onl beginning to rise from the of more than half a century of des" elation, looks forward and pro~" ises in God's name a new and dif" ferent kind of city.

This you would see in war time. In that era aged and the very young and weak simply died off in war only in times of peace would be out there in large number~ How Poaoo Comes Now children and old people not make peace, they simply e~t~ it. It is the middle-aged, the ae~ influential people who do raa~ either for peace or against it.~ the prophet Zechariah addre~a the great mass of the people ab~d peace and prosperity (8:12)..~d speaks of "sowing" prosperity, ~0~ then goes on to put this flgur~ speech into very plain words. ~" %, are the seeds ?
