"GETTING BT AND
Lake 12: 48 "Bat he that knew sot,
and did not commit things worthy
of stripes, shall be beaten with
few stripes. To whomsoever much
is fives, of him shall he mach re
quired; and to whom men have
committed mach, of him they will
ask the more."
Two popular terms today are
"getting by" and "getting there".
However the philosophy of merely
"getting by" may mean eventual
failure. "Getting there" obviously
denotes success. One of the finest
messages I ever heard in this con
nection in a verse of just four
Most any poor old fish can Hot,
and drift along and dream.
But it takes a regular live one,
To swim against the stream.
The man who is going to swim
successfully against the stream
dares not give a place in his life to
a simple "getting by" program.
The above scripture verse is one
among several found in God's Word
that reminds us to be diligent. Are
we doing the best we can with the
abilities entrusted us? Do we be
lieve it to be a challenge of God
to do our very "best"? Or do we
take such words as meaningless.
The mother of Dwight L. Moody
found the secret of "getting there".
At her funeral Dr. Moody gave a
verse of his mother's creed: "When
averything went against her, this
was her stay 'My trust is in God'."
While serving as a chaplain in
Korea, it was this writer's good

. The Club sponsored banquets,
gave trophies, bought a movie

furnished transportation to and
from out-of-town games. This is
just a few of the Club's projects.

Faith such as this will stir one
onward and upward. The man
who has trust in Him, can be con
fident in the face of disaster, and
ride on to victory.
Listen again to Joshua on that
memorable day when he gathered
Israel together for his farewell
message: "As for me and my

With that motto he led his people
There were two brothers, one
was willing to follow a program of
"getting by"; the other, in spite of
his shortcomings, followed a mili
tant program of "getting there".
Esau's philosophy of living for the
present caused him to lose his
birthright. On the other hand, Jac
ob's life tvas rich, and through
him a people were blessed.
Years ago a baby-girl was born
into a life of pain. She carried
throughout her earthly existence a
eak and suffering body. As life
as drawing to a close, she said a
day could hardly be remembered
/hen her body had been free of
pain. In spite of her illness, she
forged ahead with her work and
became a blessing to the world.
Her name ? Catherine Booth, the
immortal warrior of the Salvation
irmy. The Apostle Paul said, "I
can do all things through Christ
who strengthenth me." This
Christ has no place for merely
"getting by" in His great program.
He demands our best.
