DR. MIMS ADDRESSES STUDENTS
"A Life Work" Made the Subject of a Most Helpful
, ' : Lecture. Ths Supreme Need of
Dr. Minis' address on "A Man's Lif
Work," which was delivered in the Y.
M. C. A. auditorium Tuesday night,
was a most inspiring and helpful lec
ture: It was a clean and forceful in
terpretation of tne Christian life follow
ed by an exhortation to choose a profes
sion in which one might' best live; a
Christian life. Dr. Mims' address was,
in substance." "A Christian life is a
life, of expansion, progress, morality,
and service. : A man, in order to live a
Christian life, must have not merelj
his ' moral nature developed, but his
physical and intellectual powers as
well. It is our duty to develop them,
for unless we do, our moral capabilities
will be impaired. A man who has
never drunk or gambled is almost as
culpable if he has neglected his physi-ical-
and intellectual powers which
would give him the maximum amount
of efficiency. After a man has de
veloped his talents he should proceed
to use them. It is then that Christian
life is a life of progress. Some men
get out of college but get no further.
Others only get halfway up the moun
tain or venture only a little way upon
the sea of life. It is the highest and
noblest type of man which does not
stop climbing and going until he has
explored the furthest limits of his ca
pabilities. Progress distinguishes man
from the beast. A beast's develop
ment and progress ends practically
with the instinct which nature gives
it while that of a man is endless. ;
; "A Christian life is one of morality.
Religion is niorality with the Christian
conception of man's relation to God and
his fellow man added. Morality ,is
necessary to religion and no amount pf
piety can atone for the absence of it.
A Christian life is a life of service also.
It is a' life of whole hearted joyous
serviceto our fellow man. We are all
thinking about our life work. From
a Christian point of view there is only
one way to look at it. inat is to
choose from those pursuits in which
we are most apt,r that one in which
we can best live the Christian life and
serve our fellowmen. It is a common
practice among promising young South
erh men to choose the legal profession.
The law offers many temptations for
crooked practice. Some lawyers-not
all-go to the extremity of even bribing
uries and of manufacturing evidence.
But of course this is not a necessary
part of the profession.; If you decide
to. practice law, tane the Christian con
ception into the business with you and
be guided by that. ,
Do whtever you can fr your country
and your fellowmen. The way of the
true political leader is that of the
cross, i ne way oi tne pagan politi
cal leader is too often that of wealth
gained by dishonest means and of
power won by loul methods. 1 he de
velopment of the south is bringing
many immoral forces into it as well as
opening up new fields for men of
ability. ' Here is a great harvest field
or ministers, i hi; fcouth s increased
attention to education opens up a vast
field for teachers, and men of ability
are needed. The field of medicine is
one of the greatest fields for service.
Choose any respectable profession and
f you carry the' Christian conception
