THE PLACE OF SAFETY

SAFELY sheltered by mountains, and lying along the ocean on the Pacific Coast of the United States, is a certain small section which is of special interest because of its peculiar adaptability to the successful culture of the lily. Here, safe from harsh winds and sharp rise and fall in temperature, this symbol of purity in the floral kingdom comes naturally into fullness of maturity and beauty. Such an instance of harmonious development hints the divine order of unfoldment in the kingdom of God, wherein all creation is eternally maintained in purity, perfection, and safety.

Deep in the human heart lies the longing for safety. Today, in ever-increasing measure, mankind turns to the contemplation of ways and means to attain it. Legion are those who are talking about it, and individuals and great combinations of men are earnestly striving to do something about it. Statesman and material scientists burn the midnight oil in well-intentioned human effort to find the way, and hope rises again and again, only to turn to doubt, discouragement, and despair with the recognition that the inventions of men which promise safety on the one hand point to destruction on the other.
