GEORGE H. WIMBERLY, Sr.
a LAWYER knows. .
he'll see that you're treated fairly!
Many questions come up when you're buying a home. Who gets the garden tools
... the appliances .. the storm windows and screens? Do they go with the house
or do you have to pay extra for them? This year's taxes: do you pay them, or does
the buyer? Who gets the oil that's left in the tanks?
Like most questions connected with home buying, these are matters of law. And ,
nobody knows law like a lawyer. His job is to look after yourinterests. He sees to it
that the sales contract gives you everything you're entitled to. Important as such
things are, they're just a small part of the lawyer's services. It's he who tells you
what is safe to sign and what'isn't if thl property you're buying fits the des-
cription whether or not there are claims against it.
His help costs you very little-far less than the trouble you might have without
it! Those who know tell you: never buy property without seeing a lawyer.
A TITLE and TRUST COMPANY OF FLORIDA POLICY
PROTECTS YOU AGAINST "HIDDEN RISKS"
Your lawyer can, and will, find any
flaws that appear in the records. But
he knows there may be hidden risks
not shown in the records. A mistake
in names, perhaps, or an undisclosed
heir-these flaws and many others can
lead to a claim against your title.
Your protection against such risks
is a Title and Trust Company of Flor-
ida Policy, issued right here in town.
If your title, as guaranteed, is ever
questioned, Title and Trust Company
of Florida takes over its defense, pay-
irg the full cost of litigation. If there
is a loss, it is paid promptly.
Best of all, once you have a Title
and Trust Company of Florida Policy,
you have no further cost to keep it in
No other title protection you can get has as strong
financial backing as that of this 50-year-old company

Christian Love. Love for others
was declared by Jesus to be a
badge of discipleship ("By this
shall all men know that ye are my
Disciples, if ye have love one to
another." John 13:35).
Today we are to consider "Grow-
ing in Christian Love" and the
printed lesson is taken from the
words of Jesus and from the writ-
ings of John for the instruction of
the Christians of his day. Both pas-
sages are timely for then and now.
We might ask the question at this
point, "What is Christian Love?"
In our memory selection (Col. 3:14)
we hear the apostle Paul saying,
"Above all things put on charity
(Love), which, is the bond of per-
fectness." Just before this the
apostle had described the distinc-
tive garments with which the
Christian is to be clothed. Namely:
a heart of compassion, sumility,
and a gentle, patient and forgivign
spirit. In order to complete the
as your Father in Heaven is per-
fect." We must show the difference
between the Christian and the non-
2. We have also said that Chris-
tian love is sympathetic and un-
derstanding. We could well ask
the question, "Why should we try
to love both our friends and our
enemies? What is there about
Christian love that turns hate into
love? I find the answer to these
questions in ,1 John 4:11. "Beloved
if God so loved us, we ought also
to love one another."
And as we come to understand
our debt to God for Hisi love to us,
we should also recognize the mag-
nitude of our debt to show forth
Christ's love to others. True love
seeks to understand the truth and
to share that truth with all men.
Finally we say Christian love is
productive and fruitful. Love brings
insight and assurance. "He that
dvelleth in love dwelleth in God.
Christian character he is to be and God in him" (1 John 4:16).
