Love Your Enemies

Has it ever struck you, Christian friends, how very important it is that we heed this admonition? Do this, says Jesus, “and ye shall be the children of the Highest”.

Careers for Women

Dear Schuiler: Is a career, rather than matri­mony, ever a woman’s calling? If not, what can she do about it? May a Christian young woman pray for a husband? * * * * * This is really a threefold ques­tion, although the second question almost seems to imply that a nega­tive reply is expected to […]

The Father’s Love and Child-like Faith

God has given His people a source of great comfort in the con­templation of the Father-child re­lationship that exists between Him and His people.
