From our Exchanges

The Holy Scriptures are able to make us "wise unto salvation" only as we receive the truths they make known into good and honest hearts. Knowledge of the Scriptures as literature may be so perfect, if it do not make them a lamp to the feet and a light to the path, they are of no more spiritual value to us than the code of Hammurabi or the Hindu Vedas.—The Examiner.

Jesus' spiritual interpretation of life actually translated into a present-day program becomes a change of emphasis. It may read: "Let your thoughts be not so much on acquisition as on stewardship; not so much on your rights as on your duties; not so much on compulsion as on kindness." It is a new standard of values, says the Sunday School Times.

The best test of truth, we may briefly say, and the surest guaranty that our light is light and not darkness, lies in the satisfaction of the inward and spiritual life of the soul of man. There is no surer refuge from all that is false than that which comes from culture and growth, from the satisfaction of the demands of the Spirit and the growth into a pure and holy life. Become nobler and your darkness will be less dark; your light more surely a celestial radiance, for evermore is the perfect vision the reward of the perfect life.
