You looked around,

do it, for nobody sees me." Perhaps,
just at the moment, your quick eye
caught sight of some one. "My fa-
ther is coming;" or, "I see my mo-
ther." You were going to yield to the
temptation, but you were checked;
for you said to youmul "If I de it,
I shalU be seen, and punished."

to look.
It seems when Naaman came out
of the water, oured, be desired to ex-
prem his gratitude to the prophet by
Making him (as we sometime saly)
a handsome.present. But Elisha re-
fused to accept any recompense what-
ever. He knew that the work' had
been done, not by him, but by G(I;
and he deusied to show this man
(hitherto a heathen, mad only ao-
quaited with earthen priest who
were seldom other them wicked im-
poster) how differntwas -the ohe-
racter of the onlytr.o raiion from
that which prevailed in the countries

a loing oeoern, sad sooner or later
you wi find it so. Have nothing to
do with it, therefore. Repel the
temptation as soon as it i presented.
Admit nt the desire of anything that
can only be had by ianing against
God. Let it be a settled principle with
you, "Whether I gain or lose, I must
never in. Whatever I seek' for, I
mant seek for it in the path of right-
eouness. I must not go out of the

it, that the only true wisdom coaists
k obedience to the direction of our
Lord, "Seek fitthe kingdom of God
and his righteousness, and al other
things shall be added unto you." At
all events, come what will come, never
allow yourself even to wish for what
you cannot have consistently with the
will of God. As soon as the tempta-
ion comes, say with the martyr, who
was offered life if he would recant,
"None but Christ! none but Christ!"
The tempter may point to the talents
ilver, and the changes of garments;
but Jook beyond them to the leprosy
whih they occasioned. Yes; if ever
y are tempted to Ar like Gehazi,
let the recollection of Gehazi's pwsi

man, if he shall gain the whole
world and lose his own soul?"
To sum up the whole matter in a
)w words:--Gehazi began by ad-
itting the desire of what he could
ot possess in accordance with the
ill of God: this desire, admitted
od cherished, led to the direct and
3peated commission of sin. For a
short time this appeared to have been
accssful, but it was only for a short
me: his sin was detected, and pun-
ihmint -immediately followed. If
tempted to sin, therefore, think on
ekhsi and his leprosy.
