work in order to live Amd that
work was hard and often ure-
warding, though he sook dis-
covered that it was only by
honest work that he kept his
life at all useful and whole-
some and himself out of mis-
chief.
Modern nan devoted much e-
nergy to discovering how by
working less and less he can
earn more and more, making
machines or other people do the
hard work for himg thinking
that that leisure is real life
and work only drudgery, and
finding that in fact the more
leisure he has, the less does
he know what he can usefully
do with it.
COMPETE TI ON
Primitive man, as personified
Cain and Abel, pursued differ-
ent kinds of life, some work-
ing on the land and some sheep
farming anc the like. Cain,
competitive and covetous, grew
jealous of Abel's prosperity and
in the end Eurdered him.
Modern man .develop every kind
of productive industry and seems
to think tiat he can only go on
developing it under the stimu-
lus of keen competition. Com-
petition creates friction and
jealousy and becomes cut-
throat competition. Big concerns
combine anm absorb in order to
increase their strength and
drive other concerns out of
business.
So though society is kindly
enough, it becoues governed by
the laws of economic survival
of the fittest, of economic
murder; and co-operation comes
in only to strengthen the
stranglehold of economic
oligarchs.
Of course, one can easily
and truthfully draw a quite
different picture, showing
the triumpant advances of man
from Prinitive squalor and
fear and ignorance to the
magnificence of manrsy self-
confident mastery over nature.
Primitive man built his tow-
ers of Babelasky high, but
when they stated speaking in
different languages, they lost
comaiinity. f idea, they could
not work .together, and their
towers collased.

Men are not so much afraid as lost. They do not know where they are, what

IT HAS ITS PLLCE, BUT T ET IS NOT ALL TH .; MOST IIPOiCiT4T PLCXz IN LIU f
In the Christian life, the great question is not male and female, but'
the two in a life of Christian service and stability that is the meaning ofl
long marriage. Because sax is subordinate to the stability of Christian living .
is no place for adultery or fornication or covetousness of sex experience.
IN I TS P LiC E
Jesus Christ puts work in its place. He was always a working an and found his
in his work and he said that our Heavenly Father was a worker too. Work traly
is a true form of nan's leisure, and a man's leisure if it ~ians anything is a
of work and both to the glory of God.
As to competition and co-operation, both are needed for a creative li(e; bht a
when both are made obedient to the supreme principle of love and its counterpart
fice, do they become really creative.
Only so can uan's instinct for jealousy and strife, his itch to have more, and s
least more than his neighbour, his nurdLrous desires be overcome.
If a man knows how to worship God, competition will only be an encouragement to
good work, and co-operaticn the readiness to carry another man's burden for him it
he cannot or will not.

Modern uan devoted much energy to discovering how by wor;:int less anc ? less he can earn more and more, caking machines or other people do the hard work for him, thinking that that leisure is real life and work only drudgery, and finding that in fact the more leisure he 1ms, the less does he know what he can usefully do with it.

Modern uan develop every kind of productive industry and seems to think tiut he can only go on developing it under the stimulus of keen competition. Competition creates friction and jealousy anc 1 becomes cutthroat competition. Big concerns combine and absorb in order to increase their strength and drive other concerns out of business.
