JESUS BLESSES LITTLE CHILDREN-WE MUST BECOME AS

LITTLE CHILDREN--THE RICH YOUNG MAN.

of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican. I fast twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift

his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying, O God, be merciful to me a sinner. I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

SUFFER the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God.-Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come to me: for the kingdom of heaven is for such.

AMEN, I say to you: whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, shall not enter into it.

Why callest thou me good? None is good but one, that is God.60—If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. - Thou knowest the commandments.- Thou shalt do no murder, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness ; honour thy

father and thy mother: and, thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. . Yet one thing is wanting to thee: sell all whatever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.-If thou wilt be perfect, go sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me. ... How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!... Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

With men it is impossible; but not with God: for all things are possible with God.—The things that are impossible with men, are possible with God.

AMEN, I say to you, that you who have followed me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit on the seat of his majesty, you also shall sit on twelve seats, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting.

BLESSEDNESS OF THOSE WHO FORSAKE ALL FOR CHRIST

PARABLE OF THE HOUSEHOLDER.

AMEN, I say to you, there is no man that hath left house or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, who shall not receive much more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.

AMEN, I say to you, there is no man who hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who shall not receive an hundred times as much now in this time; houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions: and in the world to come life everlasting. But many that are first 1 shall be last, and the last first.

The kingdom of heaven is like to an householder, who went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And having agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And going out about the third hour, he saw others standing in the marketplace idle. And he said to them: Go you also into my vineyard, and I will give you what shall be just. And they went their way. And again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did in like manner. But about the eleventh

hour he went out and found others standing, and he saith to them: Why stand you here all the day idle? They say to him : Because no man hath hired us. He saith to them: Go you also into my vineyard. And when evening was come, the lord of the vineyard saith to his steward: Call the labourers and pay them their hire, beginning from the last even to the first. When therefore they were come that came about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first also came, they thought that they should receive more: and they also received every man a penny. And receiving it they murmured against the master of the house, saying: These last have worked but one hour, and thou hast made them equal to us, that have borne the burden of the day and the heats. But he answering said to one of them: Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst thou not agree with me for a penny? Take what is thine, and go thy way: I will also give to this last even as to thee. Or, is it not lawful for me to dohl what I will? is thy eye evil, because I am good? So shall the last be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.

If a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world : but if he walk in the night, he stumbleth, because the light is not in him.... Lazarus our friend sleepeth; but I go that I may awake him out of sleep. ... Lazarus is dead; and I am glad, for your sakes, that I was not there, that you may believe: but let us go to him. ... Thy brother shall rise again. ... I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live: and every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever. Believest thou this? ... Where have you laid him? ... Take away the stone. ... Did not I say to thee, that if thou believe, thou shalt see the glory of God? ... Father, I give thee thanks that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always; but because of the people who stand about have I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. ...

Lazarus, come forth. ... Loose him, and let him go.

You know not of what spirit you are. The Son of man came not to destroy souls, but to save,
