Regardless of whether he,

This requirement of an an

person who reaches age 72 and
continues to work. He can
draw payments regardless of
earnings after reaching 72, but
he still is required to file the
annual report for the year in
which he reaches 72.

, However, our security must

'We sometimes tend to forget
this. We, as was Paul, must
be realistic about the road that
the Christian churches travel if
they are to stand for anything.
The powerful forces of organiz
ed selfishness, pride, lust, hate,
and envy certainly do exist.
There is no denying that. If
you doubt their existence for
one instance, all you have to
do is to try to da something
about them. Their response
will be instantaneous!
We must, however, also be
realistic about ourselves. One
of the most distressing things
that has hurt many Christians
who took, a stand on any issue
is the fact that very often it is

The jungle of selfishness,
pride, lust, hate and envy is
not behind us, disappearing as
docs the shoreline when a ship
puts out to sea. It is. rather,
underneath all of us, and it is
only the religious life that helps
us to rise above it. We will
remain humble when we are
realistic about ourselves and. as
did Paul, will be able to under
stand and sympathize with th<
very people who will attack us
when we summon uo our cour
age to try to stand for some-
