"THE PRACTICAL TRUTH"

There are those in the world today who take a gloomy view of Christianity. They question its ability to meet the world's problems and needs and suggest that it is wholly impractical in the earthly scheme of things. They appear to believe that Christianity is only a Utopia for the idealist, who keeps his head in the clouds. Yet no man was more practical or more intent upon showing the practicability of his teaching by demonstration than the master Christian, Christ Jesus.

Jesus was a carpenter. Then as now carpentry was considered a very useful and practical trade. Later when Jesus went out into the world, he went not to serve as a carpenter, but to perform another service—to teach and heal mankind, to be their Saviour. Out of the great depths of his own understanding of God, he knew men needed moral courage, healthy bodies, peace of mind, if they were to be useful to themselves and to others.
