"For Thou, Lord, hast made me
glad thru Thy work: I will triumph
in the work of Thy hands. O Lord,
how great are Thy works! And
Thy thoughts are very deep. A
brutish man knoweth not; neither
doth a fool understand this." Psalm
Evidently the Psalmist spent a
great deal of time thinking on the
things of heaven and contemplating
the handiwork of God. From such
contemplation there came to him
the grand conception of God's
works and power which we find ex
emplified in his writings. To the
Psalmist it was a blessed and ele
vating experience to become wrapt
in the thoughts of God, clothed up
on with the slpendors and wonders
of the universe.
Some people simply cannot appre
ciate such an experience. They
seem incapable of these boundless
and rapturous sweeps of vision and
thought. They seem to have brains
only for those things that are vul
gar, coarse, frivolous, narrow and
sordid. Their thinking is all earth
ward, never heavenward.
"A brutish man knoweth not." A
brute is a creature of the lower or
der, of the dust; and there are
many men who are nothing more
than mere creatures of the dust,
living upon the low, creeping level
of the unthinking brute; moved
only by fleshly desires, with never a
thought above the ground. Steeped
in the dregs of materialism, they
have apparently become insensate
to any high and noble thinking.
"Neither doth a fool understand
this." He does not understand be
cause he has never trained his
mind for high thinking. Continu
ally occupying his mind with ma
terialistic and vulgar thoughts, he
has become incapable of heavenly
and spiritual conceptions.
Nevertheless, man is Divinely en- j
dowed with a capacity for a higher
level of thinking than that of the
brutish man and the fool. We not
only sin against God, but we sin
against our better selves, when we
neglect to cultivate and develop this
capacity. Like the Psalmist, we
must train ourselves to THINK
HEAVENWARD; and, contemplat
ing the works of God, fill our souls
with the larger and higher thoughts
and aspirations that just naturally
follow such contemplation. God
help us to foundation our reading
and thinking on His Word, then we
shall be always THINKING HEAV

cake," made of ingredients men

was a feature. The sermon of the
morning was based on the text Ro
mans 1-16, "I am not ashamed of
the Gospel of Christ," and was
heard by a very large number. A
special musical number was sung
by the quartette also. Next Sun
day the 11th will be another big
