Judges ; Lesson Textt Mark t-M-Mi Judge il3:12-14i I Cor. S:lt-17; i,- Keauaa 12:1-2 After the feeding of the five thousand, Jesus told Us disciples to get into a boat and row across the Sea cf Galilee to Gennesaret, leaving him behind. During the crossing a storm arose and the disciples thought surely they would be drowned. How ever, .Jesus had kept his . eyes on them, and seeing" their difficulty, he walked toward them on the water. We know the story of Peter, who, upon seeing Jesus approaching on the water! attempted to walk from the boat toward him, but becoming frightened, began to sink. Jesus rescued him and together they re turned to the boat. Reaching land, they "moored to the shore." Here again we see evidences of Jesus concern for the physical bodies of men, because, as soon as news of his arrival was noised abroad through the district, the people hurried to him, bringing with them any who were sick among them. Evidently, there was much sickness in this little district, for Mark declares that "wheresoever he entered into vil lages or into cities, or into the coun try, they laid the sick in the market places, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment, and as' many as touched him were made whole." It is no wonder that Jesus is known as the Great Physician. Throughout the Bible one can find numerous indications that God is in terested also in the physical well- as well as the soul, and He knows that in order for man to attain the hisrhest degree of perfection in life, care must be taken of both the body) and the soul. The passage from Judges, given for our consideration, is advice given to a husband, Manoah, by an angel of God. concerning what his wife was to do before the birth of the child which God had promised them. The completeness of the angel's in structions is revealed in the fact that he simply repeated to Manoah the same instructions he had previously given to Manoah's wife. The child which was to be born was dedicated to God and would be a Nazi rite, or one who is separated unto God and who takes certain vows which are to be rigidly kept. It should be noted that not only was the Nazirite himself to abstain from strong drink, but the mother of the one who was to live under a Nazirite vow all his life was to re frain from drinking any strong drink from the time of ' the conception of the thild to the day of his ; birth. This,' is significant Dr.' J. Clifton Edgar, a professor of obstetrics in Cornell University Medical College for thirty years, in a book on "The Practices of Obstetrics," in speaking of the diet of an expectant mother, says, "The drink should :' be water, milk, or chocolate; tea and coffee nnay be taken in moderation, but should not be strong. Alcoholic bev erages should ., be .avoided, for the pregnant woman is especially prone to contract the alcoholic habit" - Paul makes a very strong plea for temperance in all things, when he re minds us, in striking manner, "Know ye now that ye are in the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. If any man de stroyed the temple of God, him shall God destroy." If we realized this more fully, we probably would not do many of the things with our bod ies and to our bodies that we now do. No man in his right mind would tear down or attempt to destroy a material temple of God's, or desecrate a church building. No, God's temple is too sacred .a place for even the unbeliever to lay hands upon. And yet, our individual temples our bod iesare not held to be as sacred. We weaken them by carelessness, by! over-anxiety, by over-work, by over indulgence, by sin without even con sidering the fact that we ' are de stroying a sacred thing. l; If we think of our . bodies' as the dwelling place of the Spirit of God, we cannot. help but take, care of them. We cannot take into our bod ies anything that will destroy them and, surely all scientific research points to tne net tnat alcohol is a destroyer of human tissues and a paralyser of nerve centers. Someone has declared that , fthe movement against alcohol is more than a ques tion of reducing drunkness, prevent ing accidents, increasing efficiency; it is a question of preserving life from generation to generation." If we accept Paul' plea and "pre sent out bodies a living sacrifice holy, acceptable to God," then we shall have the power to refuse to do those things which tend to render our bod ies as unfit dwelling places for the Spirit of God, we shall refuse to be "conformed to this world," to do things Just because others are doing them, but will strive to keep our bod ies' strong and clean, holy and accept able to God.

And it Isn't French; it was invented in Italy. - Musicians call this instrument a cross between a trumpet and a primitive animal horn. It is one of the most costly (and also one of the most difficult to play) wind instruments in an orchestra.

Customers are your best assets; lose them and you lose your business. 666 is worth three er four times as much as a SUBSTITUTE.
