PICTURES FROM THE PARABLESOF OUR LORD.WHEN our Lord was upon earth, He used sometimes to teach HisDisciples by parables-puzzle-stories-which had a deep meaninghidden in them.Our first picture is of the manwho bad only one talent to takecare of He was a wicked manand dug a hole and hid themoney in the earth insteadof trading with it as hisfellow servants had done.God gives every one ofus some talents. Whenyou run about to helpyour 'mother, or learnyour lessons well, orplay gently with asick friend you aretaking good careof the talent Godgives you.HIDING THE TALENT.Read Matthew xxv. 14-30.


SOWING THE SEED.


o doubt as ourLord sat in theboat on the sea ofTiberias He couldsee the farmer atwork in his fields.As he threw theseedthewind wouldcatch it and blowsome bn the hard leipath, and the birdssoon picked it up.Others would fallamong stones withvery little earth to ecover them andwould soon getscorched by thesun. Others wouldfall among thethorn bushes, andas the wheat grewthe poor little tender blades would be choked for want of light and room,But many of the seeds would fall on the good ploughed ground, andthe farmer would be rewarded for his trouble by seeing the wheat growup until at harvest time it yielded him a hundred times as much as hehad sowed.#When next you see a cornfield, try and remember Christ's story of thesower, and ask Him to let the good seed-His Bible, His Sabbath, andevery good word you hear, sink into your heart and bring forth goodfruit.IN THE HARVEST FIELD.Read Matthew xiii. 3-9.


THE GOOD SHEPHERD.


N Eastern countries the sheep are led, not driven. The shepherd walksin front, often carrying some weak little lamb, and calls the others justas we call dogs. Do you not remember that it was once said of Christ," He shall carry the lambs in His bosom?"But see what a sad thing, has happened to theother flock! They had not a good keeper, only aman who was paid to look after them, a hireling.When he heard the wolf coming he ran away andSleft the poor sheep to the cruel wolves.Jesus is our Good Shepherd. He did not run away when th evilone, like a wolf, wanted to destroy us, but He give up His life, for uTHE NEGLECTED FLOCK.Read okhn x. 1-18.


THE TEN VIRGINS.


HERE is an Eastern marriage procession. The bridegroom is taking his"bride home. No one knew what time he was coming ; but suddenlysome one cried, " The bridegroom cometh!" These ten virgins ought tohave been ready with bright lamps to go out to meet him and join in theprocession.But if you look at the other picture you will see only five were reallyready. The others had lamps, but, the oil was all burnt out ; so they willnot be able to join in the procession.The bridegroom will be grieved at their neglect, and when he and allhis friends with the five wise virgins, have gone into the house, thedoor will be shut and the foolish ones will be left outside.7THE WEDDING PROCESSION.Read Matthew xxv. 1-13.


WuAT is this womanlooking for ? Shehas lost a piece ofmoney. Perhaps sheis very poor, and shecannot spare evenone coin, though itis only a nsmall one.She has Dine otherpieces, but she can-not rest until shefinds the little silver scoin. So she setsto work at once, andlights a lamp, andsweeps the huse,and looks about care-fully in all the cor-ners. At last shefinds it, and how glad 8she is! When shehas found it she will go and tell her neighbours her joy.So our good Jesus does not want to lose one of his little ones whomHe loves so much. When a little child has been naughty and then issorry and prays to Him to forgive it, He is so very glad and He rejoices.You know what a very hard sad life Jesus led on earth; is it notbeautiful to think that even a little child can make His heart glad now ?THE LOST PIECE OF SILVER.Read Luke xv. 8-10.


HERE is a sad picture. That poor man was travelling alone througha rocky road between Jerusalem and Jericho, when he was attackedby some thieves, and left on the roadside to die.A priest passing by, saw the poor fellow lying in the road, but hethought perhaps it was no business of his, and passed by on the otherside of the way.Next came a Levite, who was more hardhearted still, for he looked at the woundedman and then left him.Presently there came a Samaritan, andas the Jews and Samaritans hated eachother, of course he could not be ex-pected to help the poor man.But he had a tender heart, andgot off his ass ad poured oil andwine into the wounds. And nodoubt the man began to feelbetter when the woundshad been bound up, andthe bleedingstopped.THE GOOD SAMARITAN.Read Luke x. 2&


The Samaritan rilight perhaps have felt, now that he had done morethan his duty, he could go happily home. But the next picture showsyou that he would not leave the poor man thus. He put him on hisown beast and took him to the nearest inn, stayed the night with him,and when morning came and he was obliged to go away, he left moneywith the innkeeper to look after the sick man.You see the good Samaritan did not go out of his way wondering whatgrand thing he could do to serve God-he saw the man in the road as hewas going on his own way and did his duty at once. It is far better toplease God by the little every-day duties which lie right in our path thanto be always wondering what great thingHe may have for us to do.S* " 10BOUND UP HIS WOUNDS.' I 2<


AND TOOK CARE OF HIM.


ooR littlesheep! Ithas wandered 'from its shep .herd until itcannot hearhis voice orthe bleatingof the rest ofthe flock.It has scrambledover the rocky paths,and now it is caught inthe brambles, and it seesa fierce bird coming downeager to bury its talons in thatpoor tender flesh. Is there nohope for the little sheep ?Yes,- look at the next picture.The shepherd has missed the silly, naughty sheep, and starts off tofind it.He will have to climb up those rocks and get torn and scratched, buthe does not mind that, for he has found his lost sheep and will lay itgently in his bosom, and take it back to the flock.Oh how often we forsake our Good Shepherd and forget all about Him!But He never oses patience. When we cry to Him, He listens to us andhelps us. Shall we not try out of very love, to give Him less trouble ?Jesus, we come to Thee, O0! be our Guide, we pray,We want our sins forgiven; While through this world we roam,O0! let us all Thy childten be, And lead us so that every dayAnd make us fit for heaven. May find us nearer home.12THE LOST SHEEP.Read Matthew xviii. 10-14.


'~~V 1314 '.FINDING THE SHEEP.


T HE poor man standing so humblyI is a Publican. or tax-gatherer. Heis hated by many of the Jews becausehe collects the taxes from them fortheir conquerors, the Romans. Butalthough he is not liked by men, heis loved by God, and he bends hishead and smites his breast, as asign of sorrow for his sins, saying -humbly, " God be merciful to me asinner."In the other picture you see aPharisee who, instead of asking Godto forgive him for what he had donewrong, began telling God how muchmoney he had given away, and howoften he had fasted, as if he thoughtGod ought to be very pleased withhim. Which do you -think reallypleased God most ? The Publican.What a lesson this story teachesus! We must not be proud andconceited because we are better off,or more clever than our neighbours,but we must be humble and remember that the lowly Jesus humbledHimself even unto death for the sins of the world.Hark, it is the Saviour calling, 0 may He who, meek and lowly," Little children, follow Me." Trod Himself this vale of woe,Jesus, keep our feet from falling; Make us His, and make us holy,Teach us all to follow Thee. Guard and guide us while we go.14"GOD BE MERCIFUL TO ME A SINNER."Read Luke xviii. 9-14.


THE PHARISEE AND THE PUBLICAN..


" AN the blind lead the blind?" The picture will show you theanswer, you see they have both walked into the water. If they hadonly asked some one who had good eyes to lead them they might havegot on all right.It was very silly of them to trust to each other ; yet do we not oftenallow ourselves to be led by people who do not know what is right andtrue, instead of going straight to God's word and finding out there whichway He would have us walk ?How often too little children let themselves be led into mischief byothers instead of quietly doing what their parents have told them.But we have come to the end of our pictures, and what one lesson canwe learn from what wehave seen ? Surely this-that as our Lord taughtHis followers by means ofsimple every day thingsgoing on around, so weif we like can let every-thing-money, fields,birds, and sheep, remindus of Him.With humble heart and tongue,Great God, to Thee we pray,O may we learn while we are youngTo walk in wisdom's way.Now, in our early days,Teach us Thy will to know ;...O God, Thy sanctifying graceBetimes on us bestow.O Let Thy word of graceOur warmest thoughts employ ;Be this, through all our following days,Our treasure and our joy.16THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND.Read Luke vi. 39

.WUAT is this woman looking for ? She has lost a piece of money. Perhaps she is very poor, and she cannot spare even one coin, though it is only a small one. She has nine other Spieces, but she cannot rest until she finds the little silver s coin. So she sets to work at once, and lights a lamp, and sweeps the hose, and looks about carefully in all the corners. At last she "finds it, and how glad 8 she is! When she has found it she will go and tell her neighbours her joy. So our good Jesus does not want to lose one of his little ones whom He loves so much. When a little child has been naughty and then is sorry and prays to Him to forgive it, He is so very glad and He rejoices. You know what a very hard sad life Jesus led on earth: is it not beautiful to think that even a little child can make His heart glad now ? THE LOST PIECE OF SILVER. Read Luke xv. 8-10.

PICTURES FROM THE PARABLES OF OUR LORD. WHEN our Lord was upon earth, He used sometimes to teach His Disciples by parables-puzzlestories-which had a deep meaning hidden in them. Our first picture is of the man who had only one talent to take 6 care of. He was a wicked man and dug a hole and hid the money in the earth instead of trading with it as his fellow servants had done. God gives every one of us some talents. When you run about to help your lmother, or learn your lessons well, or play gently with a sick friend you are taking good care of the talent God gives you. HIDING THE TALENT. Read Matthew xxv. 14-30.

o doubt as our Lord sat in the boat on the sea of Tiberias He could see the farmer at work in his fields. < AAs he threw the V seedthewind would catch it and blow some on the hard l path, and the birds i soon picked it up. Others would fall among stones with very little earth to cover them and would soon get scorched by the sun. Others would fall among the thorn bushes, and as the wheat grew the poor little tender blades would be choked for want of light and room, But many of the seeds would fall on the good ploughed ground, and the farmer would be rewarded for his trouble by seeing the wheat grow up until at harvest time it yielded him a hundred times as much as he had sowed. #When next you see a cornfield, try and remember Christ's story of the sower, and ask Him to let the good seed-His Bible, His Sabbath, and every good word you hear, sink into your heart and bring forth good fruit.
