Golden Text :"Train up a child
in the vncj he should go. And
even when he is old he will not
depart from it." Prov. 22:6.
Lesson Text: Deut. 6:4-7; Jer. 35:5-10
Surely any discussion of the re'
sponsibility of the home regarding
beverage alcohol, which touches upon
the obligations of instruction by par
ents of their children, presumes that
the parents are fit, morally and spir
itually, to carry out such a responsi
The reference from Deuteronomy
. begins with a statement of belief
that Jehovah, our God is one God,
and follows this up with the words
which Jesus said were the "first and
-greatest commandment, "Thou shalt
love Jehovah thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with
all thy might." C. F. Keil declares,
"The heart is mentioned first, as the
seat of emotions generally and of
love in particular; then follows the
soul as the centre of personality in
man, to depict the love as prevading
the entire self-consciousness. Loving
the Lord with all the heart and soul
and strength is placed at the head,
as the spiritual principal from which
the observance of the Commandment1
was to flow. Even the Gospel knows
no higher command than this."
Parents who obey this great com
mandment and try to carry out its
teachings in their daily lives will be
sure to do what is next commanded,
"And these words, which I command
thee this day, shall be upon thy
heart; And thou shalt teach them
diligently unto thy children, and
shalt talk of them when thou sittest
in thy house, and when thou walkest
by the way and when thou liest down,
and when thou risest up." The "love
commandment" was and still is re
cited by Jews to themselves morning
and evemng at their devotions and
the words are taught to their chil
dren as soon as they can memorize
Our passage from Jeremiah is giv
en us to emphasize loyalty to one's
pledge or vows. It seems that the
""echadites made a vow to their lead
er, Jonadab, that they would drink
no wine, neither would they build
themselves a house, nor sow seed, nor
plant a vineyard, nor have any, but
that they would dwell in tents. This
vow was required of his followers
by Jonadab as a protest against the
Baal-worship that had flowed into
Israel from Phoenicia, against the
corruption of the life of cities and
against the intemperance which was
tainting the life of Israel.
Jeremiah set bowls of wine before
the. Rechabites, not as a temptation
to them to break their vow, but as an
object lesson to other Israelites who
succumbed more easily to worldly
temptations around them. They
steadfastly refused to break their
vow. Dr. Wilbur M. Smith says:
"We must .be fair enough to recog
nize that there are many things
here practised by the Rechabites
which are not obligatory for us also
to practice. Thus, we certainly can
not say that it is a sin to build a
house, or to sow seed, or to plant
vineyards. In many cases, these
were the exact things Israel herself
was commanded to do. The lesson
here is a very simple one, namely,
that these people, for the sake of
their ancestor, Jonadab, were going
to endure all kinds of ridicule, and
possibly hardship, to keep these vows
made long before; whereas Israel,
which had also taken vows to obey,
not some ancestor, but the Living
God, who had redeemed her from
Egypt, was not nearly as zealous in
keeping her vows made to God, to be
obedient to Him, as were these Re
chabites in sternly, sacrificially keep
ing vows made to a mere man long
Regarding temperance teaching in
the home, the best way to impress
such teaching upon the minds and
hearts of children is through the
practice of such principles in the
home. If the sanctity of the body is
thoroughly taught and the foolish
ness and sinfulness of forming any
habit which detracts from one's well
being and destroys one's body is em
phasized, it is less likely that chil
dren will begin the use of beverage
Words of warning, or threats, will
be as "sounding brass and a tinkling
cymbal" to most children whose par
ents by their own actions, fail to
"practice what they preach" in their
daily "lives. Parents who live whole
some, happy, sincere Christian, lives
before their children, will more than
likely find that these children have
imbibed some of their own convic
tions and will more easily shun the
formation of habits which will event
ually, and almost inevitably, lead to
home economics, manual training,
public school music and ' agriculture.

CONTINUITY IN THE ALBUM
A FAMILY album Is a family his
tory or should be and for
that very reason a well-kept, well
filled album Is one of the most
treasured family possessions. The
pictures need not be works of art
If they simply provide a clear
cut record of the family's life. Its
members and Its activities, that is
Anj first-rate album picture tells
you a number of things. It Is like
a news item, whose first paragraph
gives the "who. what, when, where,
why. and how" of an event. If your
album pictures answer these ques
tions, or most of them, they will
be thoroughly satisfactory.
Every good, clear picture tells
"who" you can easily recognize
the people in it. It may also tell
"where" by including a familiar,
recognizable scene. However, the
"when". is sometimes missing. The
subjects' costumes may indicate it,
in a general way but you should
also note down the date under the
picture when you place It In the
Often, too, pictures don't explain
"why" or "how." Why was the pic
ture taken? What was going on?
If you were on an outing, why don't
the pictures show what you did?
Every good picture tells a story
and this Is especially important In
family album shots.
Continuity Is Important, too. The
album Is a continued story, day to
day and year to year. Don't leave
broad gaps In It Include the every
day happenings as well as the big
family e -ents. If you have children,
include a month-to-month record of
their growth with a familiar back
ground as a "measuring rod." And
arrange the pictures in proper or
der as you take them, so the story
will run smoothly.
I have a friend who maintains
his album in this manner. First, he
shoots at least one roll of family
pictures every single week some
times more, but always a minimum
of one full rolL
Then he sets aside one half-hour
each week for the album. He Inserts
the new pictures la their proper
places writes the date under each
adds any explanation that's need
edand the job Is done. It takes
bat a short time, yet ft keeps his
album neat, complete, and strictly
up-to-date, ' T . . , ,
There's a lot of satisfaction la
1 1 j s-
"Growlng-up" shots, such as this
lend continuity to an album. Take
them frequently put a "story"
Into each of your dther album
hots and write -the data under
such a "family history book" and
you can have one just as easily as
anybody else. Ail you need is to put
in a few odd minutes each week,
and arrange your snapshots accord
ing to an orderly plan.
Pictures In correct order with
the date and ny other informa
tion under each one and a "story"
in every shot That's the formula
for a useful, ' Informative album
that you will treasure in years to
come and now is the time to start
keeping your album, along those
lines. .s.JJ t J
