"GIVE YE THEM TO EAT"
"Send them away, that they
may go Into the country round
about, and into the villages,
and buy themselves bread: For
they have nothing to eat. He
answered and said unto them,
Give ye them to eat." Mark
Famine again stalks the world,
and Jesus says, "Give ye them to
eat." In Europe one hundred and
forty million people have less than
enough to eat. China has eighty
four million who would be glad
to get the garbage of America.
In southeast Asia there are one
hundred and thirty million calling
to America for the "crumbs that
fall from our tables." In Calcutta.
India, the dogs are having a time
of feasting. They roam the streets
picking at human flesh and carry
ing human bones. A dog was found
fighting with an hysterical woman
for possesison of her husband's
Against this background of star
vation, hunger, and death thund

ye them to eat." Would that I had

spiritual persuasion to make you

of Jesus! Many of you can hardly
wait until this service ends to run
home and gorge yourselves on your
abundant Sunday dinner, while
millions would be glad to have just
the greasy water in which you will
wash the dinner dishes. There are
times when my food almost sticks
to my throat when I think of babies
and old people, the once hale and
hearty, dying for food. I could al
most wish that your Sunday dinner
would make you sick, if you make
no effort today to help feed these
Our scripture lesson is very ap
propriate for this occasion, for we
find a painful parallel to our fam
ine world today. Let me give you
the setting while you notice the
similarity. Jesus was trying to get
away from the crowd for a little
rest. Taking the disciples with
Him in the boat, they began to
row to the other side of the lake
where they could be alone and get
some much needed rest. But the
crowd hurried around the head of
the lake and reach the other side.
They were waiting for Jesus when
He stepped ashore. There they
were, tired, and hungry humanity.
It was a desert place, and night
was coming on. The disciples be
came anxious. These people have
lost all sense of time and dist
ance. A hungry man is just as
hungry at sundown as he is at
noon-time; hunger knows no time
nor place. Something must be
done at once. So the disciples
came to Jesus saying, "This is
desert country, and the sun is
going down. Send these people
away that they may buy food for
themselves in the surrounding
country and villages. Don't you
see that they have nothing tb eat:"
Like a clap of thunder out of a
clear sky, Jesus said, "Give ye
them to eat."
1. Thfe starving peoples of the
war-ravaged countries are dying
for the want of food through no
fault of their own. Their homes,
towns, and farms Were over-run
by the machines of war against
their own wills. But regardless
of how they came to such a sad
plight, they are starving while the
average family of Waynesville
"How oft shall my bi other sin against
me, and I forgive him: till seven times
seven?" asked Peter. "Until seventy
times seven," answered Jesus.
wastes enough to feed three fami
lies in Europe. Few of us are in
accord on all the questions that
beset the world. We debate world
conditions while we sit in our
warm homes, in easy chairs, while
we try to digest Ihe heavy meal
we have just consumed. Bui when
a child cries for bread, or a man
goes raving mad listening to his
child cry for bread and there is
no bread, we do not disagree. We
gladly give what help we can, if
there is a drop of the milk of
human kindness left in us.
2. In tiiis human interest story
before us, the disciples came to
Jesus with a suggestion of help
less embarrassment. They could
think of nothing hut to send the
people away, and get rid of the
responsibility. If we will be honest
with ourselves, we are in the same
position. We know that something
must be done, but we seem help
less in Ihe lace of it. I fear that
(oo many of us have the same at
titude of the disciples; we would
like to get rid of this night-mare
of starving humanity. Some of us
would push it off on others and
forget the whole thing. We Amer
icans have a way of trying to
forget unpleasant realities. We
loose ourselves in mystery stories,
moving pictures, and even comic
strips. We turn from the scream
ing headlines about starvation and
complain about a shortage of sugar,
soft drinks, shirts, nylons, and
automobiles. These are impersonal
things, that do not bleed.

Special Services At
There will be a special program
at the Dellwood Baptist church at
11:00 o'clock. The program will
be a Mother's Day event, and spe
cial services honoring all men and
women in military service will be
held. A roll call of those in serv
ice will be given in connection with
a special flower service.
Hatred hurts the hater. It hurts
him much more than fhe one hated.
The trouble with this conclusion
is that it requires thought to reach
it, and when we fall victims to
rage or hate, we lose our power
to think correctly.
It is written that, whom the gods
would destroy, they first enrage.
When you get mad, you are on the
way toward throwing away your
common sense and judgment.

I is remembered on the same day,
May 12th. The mother of the home
is perhaps more sensilive to hu
man suffering than any member
of the family. She is more than
willing to share the memory of her
day with the institution dedicated
to the heeling of humanity's hurt,"
to the healing of humanity's hurt,"
said Rev. L. G. Elliott, pastor of
the Baptist church this week in
speaking of the contributions to be
made in his church.
Every Baptist church is expected
to remember the Baptist Hospital
in Winston-Salem with a special
offering on Mother's Day, it was
pointed out by Mr. Elliott.
"Our con. ibutions will in no
way subtract from the glory of
motherhood, but rather add to it.
When we recall that the underlying
purpose of the Baptist Hospital
has always been medical care for
the poor, we can understand why
mothers gladly share their honor
with such ah institution," he fur
The Baptist Hospital rendered
free service to 4,000 patients dur
ing 1945 at a total cost of $167,
204.08. This was more than any
denominationally controlled hos
pital in the South, and ranks as one
of the top. dispensers of charity
of institutions in the nation.
The North Carolina Baptist
churches made this great service
possible through their largest
Mother's Day offerings in history,
amounting to the sum of $119,
165.78, it was pointed out by Mr.
Elliott, who expressed the hope
that the figures in 1946 would ex
ceed those of the past year.

with several packages in my hands.
I was met by an unmarried friend,
who said, "When you go home is

Learning to Live Together
HIGHLIGHTS ON THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON

It was particularly important
to Jesus and His apostles, who
lived together shared everything
with one another If there was
discord in this small group, the
work of teaching preaching heal
ing could not be carried on. The
church would die
The first lesson today concerns
forgiveness. "If thy brother shall
trespass against thee," said Jesus,
"go and tell him his fault between
thee and him alone- if he shall
hear thee, thou hast gained thy
brother." That is a lovely phrase,
"gained thy brother." His offense
may have separated you two, and
if you can persuade him to admit
his error, you have gotten him
back. You are friends comrades
If he will not listen, however,
Jesus advised that you take two
or three friends for witnesses, and
if he won't listen to them, take
the matter to the church It may
be argued that there was no
church in those days, but Jesus
was undoubtedly speaking of the
church which would be built. The
church sets up moral standards,
and if through its influence it can
restore this man to his commun
ity, that is its work.
Teter Asks About Forgiveness
Then Peter, the curious one,
asked Jesus how many times he
should forgive his brother who
had sinned "seven times seven?"
asked Peter, doubtless thinking he
was going pretty far In forgive
