Y. M. C. A. NOTES
M. A. MILLER.
The speaker for last Sunday was
Rev. R. N. Pratt, pastor of the Second
Baptist Church. He gave an inter
esting lecture on the subject, "Serving
Our Age." The career of David was
pictured as one of benefit, profit and
service to the age in which David
lived. We are to ask ourselves to
whom is our service. We must be the
servants of God; for surely not that
service of sin, of the devil. God
should have the preservation, right,
and thoughts of our hearts.
The age in which we live is far
different from that of former days.
We are living in the best age. There
fore, we ought to study the age. How
should we study our age? By spread
ing out the affections among our fel
lows. Our heart must be in every
thing we do.' Then we must ascertain
the particular part of service for us
and devote ourselves to it.
Why should we serve our age? Be
cause it is God's will. The greatest
things spoken of in the Bible are about
those serving their God in the best of
their ability. Then, again, our age
has served us faithfully from infancy
to the present time. This is the only
a dgein wn11 : Vl e'i W6olid serve.

characters of the Bible are classed
among the intellectual kings.
The Y. M. C. A. in every particular

all, it ought to be well supported and
