JOHN A. LOVEJOY,
The prison house of despair.
Here are some things that will not be there. No flowers will bloom on the banks of HELL,
No beauties of nature, we love so well;
No comforts of home, music, and song,
No friendship or joy will be found in that throng.
No children to brighten that long dreary night,
No love or peace, not one ray of light;
No blood-washed soul with face beaming bright,
No loving smile in that region of night;
No mercy, no pity, pardon, or grace,
No water, O God, what a terrible place!!
The pangs of the lost no human can tell,
Not one moments ease, there is no rest in HELL!
HELL! The prison house of despair, Here are some things that will be there;
Fire and brimstone are there, we know, For God in His Word hath told us so;
Memory, remorse, suffering and pain, weeping and wailing, but all in vain; Blasphemers, swearers, haters of God,
Sinners who refused to be washed in the blood;
Lovers of pleasure more than of God,
Christ-rejectors while here on earth trod;
Murderers, gamblers, drunkards, and liars, Will have their part in the lake of fire;
The filthy, the vile, the cruel and mean. . . What a horrible mob in Hell will be seen;
Yea, more than humans on earth can tell, Are torments and woes of ETERNAL HELL!
* The preacher announces the sermon is from Galatians. . .and you check the Table of Contents.
* You think Abraham, Isaac and Jacob may have had a few hits during the 60's.
* You open to the Gospel of Luke and a WWII Savings Bond falls out.
* Your favorite Old Testament patriarch is Hercules.
* A small family of woodchucks has taken up residence in the Psalms.
* You become frustrated because Charles Heston isn't listed in either the Concordance or the Table of Contents.
* Catching the kids’ reading the Song of Solomon, you demand: “Who gave you this trash?”
* You think the Minor Prophets worked in the quarries.
* You keep falling for it every time the preacher tells you to turn to First Conditions, (that is what you thought was the name of one of the books.)
* The kids keep asking too many questions about your usual bedtime story: “Jonah the Shepherd Boy and His Ark of Many Colors.” You can't figure out what makes them laugh. (This was not for a good laugh but to remind us that if we don't read, study and practice what is in God's Word that we are not ever truly educated if we lack in the knowledge of the Bible. There are two parts of the Gospel: BELIEVING IT and BEHAVING IT. Behaving include reading and studying plus practice. Are we spending as much time as we should feeding on the Bread of Life? The degree of our spiritual vigor will be in direct proportion to the time we spend in God's Word.
The trouble is that too many people are spending money they don't have for things they don't need to impress people they don't like. Money won't buy happiness, but it will pay the salaries of a huge research staff to study the problem. Getting riches brings care, keeping them brings trouble; abusing them brings guilt and losing them brings sorrow.
It is a great mistake to make as much of riches as we do.
From the Lips of Millionaires Who Were Married to Money:
I have made many millions but they have brought me no happiness – Rockefeller.
The care of $200,000,000 is enough to kill anyone. There is no pleasure in it – Vanderbilt.
I am the most miserable man on earth – John Jacob Astor.
What can I say? I only know I am desolate. - J. Paul Getty. I was happier when doing a mechanic's job – Henry Ford.
Millionaires seldom smile – Andrew Carnegie.
Money Will Buy...
A bed but not sleep, books but not brains, food but not appetite, finery but not beauty, a house but not a home, medicine but not health, luxuries but not culture, amusements but not happiness, a crucifix but not a Savior, religion but not salvation. A good life but not eternal life.
A real home is a gymnasium. The ideal of a healthy body is a basic one to give a child.
A real home is a lighthouse. A lighthouse reveals the breakers ahead and shows a clear way past them.
A real home is a playground. It is a place where the family can enjoy good, clean fun together.
Areal home is a workshop. Pity the boy without a kit of tools and the girl without a sewing basket. They haven't learned the fun of doing things---and there is no fun like it.
A real home is a forum. Honest, open discussion of life's problems belong originally in the family circle.
A real home is a secret society. Loyalty to one's family should mean keeping silent on family matters.
A real home is a health resort. Mothers are the natural physicians.
A real home is a cooperative league. Households flourish where the interest of each is make the interest of all.
A real home is a business concern. Order is a housewife's hobby, but order without system is a harness without a horse.
A real home is a haven of refuge. The world does this for us all, it makes us hunger for a loving sympathy and a calming soothing touch.
A real home is where the Bible is taught. This is taught daily and love of each family member is shared with all members.
A real home is where everyone has the same aim. Each and everyone wants eternal life with Jesus Christ and their aim is to reach that goal.
